"Household income inequality in the United States is higher today than before the Great Recession...Falling incomes at the bottom helped drive inequality in cities and metro areas..." - these are just two of many findings about rising economic inequality in US cities presented in a January 14, 2016 analysis report titled City and metropolitan inequality on the rise, driven by declining incomes, from the Brookings Institution. 

A National Issues Forums Institute (NIFI) issue guide titled Making Ends Meet: How Should We Spread Prosperity and Improve Opportunity? is available to help groups and communities talk about this important public issue. The guide is available as a FREE download and results from forums using the issue guide will be included in a national report to policymakers later this year. All are invited to learn more about this issue, use the NIFI issue guide, and become part of the national public voice.
