Badgett’s research cited in Newsweek

Lee Badgett

A story on whether the fight for gay rights is the contemporary equivalent to the civil rights movement of the 1960s cites a survey done in 2009 by M.V. Lee Badgett, economics professor and director of the Center for Public Policy and Administration, and colleagues in cooperation with the Williams Institute at UCLA. The study found that gays and lesbians are more likely to be poor than affluent, despite the widespread view that most gays are well off economically. (Newsweek, 12/14/10)
