Disparities in Social Security Knowledge and the Role of Social Capital

Published: 2022
Project ID: UM22-12


In this work, we will draw on existing surveys about Social Security knowledge to identify areas where knowledge differs across racial and ethnic groups. (We will also draw on a past MRDRC project, UM18-05, conducted by Katherine Carman.) We will develop a new survey, as well, that seeks to better understand how differences in social networks and social capital across racial and ethnic groups contributes to knowledge acquisition.
