Event Description:

As COVID-19 deaths rise, existing structural inequalities continue to shape racial disparities. This webinar will investigate the racial disparities in COVID-19 mortality among America’s essential workers. Data from the American Community Survey and Current Population Survey was used to examine the relationship between COVID-19 deaths and occupational differences across racial / ethnic groups and states.

Learning Objectives:

- Examine COVID-19 trends among essential workers
- Describe the relationship between the number of COVID-19 deaths and job differences across racial / ethnic groups and states
- Discuss policy implications and the need for disaggregation of state-level data by race/ethnicity to ensure equitable and evidence-based response and recovery efforts
