About the Webinar:
Rising shares of interracial unions and the increasing number of multiracial births have been celebrated by social scientists because of their potential to reduce ethno-racial inequalities in future populations. Do these shifts in population composition reduce ethno-racial inequalities in future populations? We will examine empirical evidence about the wellbeing of interracial couples and their offspring to address this question and to explore the difficulties that lie with the analysis of interracial couples and multiracial populations.
