Illinois is the worst state for economic inequality of Black residents




A WalletHub report examining economic racial inequality ranked Illinois No. 50 for disproportionate rates of unemployment, income, poverty, homelessness and representation in business leadership between Black and white residents.

Illinois was ranked the worst state in the nation for racial economic inequality, according to a new WalletHub report.

The study of economic inequality found Black Illinoisans experienced unemployment, homelessness and exclusion from the labor force at the nation’s most disproportionate rates compared to its white residents. Illinois was worst among states, but the District of Columbia’s Black residents faced greater inequality.

Alaska reported the least economic differences between white and Black residents.
