Prof. Smeeding on U.S. Income Gap

La Follette professor Timothy Smeeding was recently quoted by the BBC in a piece they ran on the growing income gap in the U.S. between white households and black and hispanic households. The article uses the 2010 U.S. Census as its data source and points to a growth in the income gap between 2005 and 2009 primarily due to the recession and the drop in housing prices.
