Financial Well-Being and Work

Overview

Lincoln’s working age population exhibits high workforce participation, high employment, and high educational attainment across most racial and ethnic groups. However, differences exist across racial and ethnic groups in terms of household incomes, individual earnings, and housing wealth. Detailed Home Mortgage Disclosure Act (HMDA) information provides insights into lower rates of home loan applications and application approvals for some groups of people of color, possibly contributing to unequal and lower share of housing wealth and homeownership across Lincoln.
