Baltimore-area residents’ daily experiences and outlooks differ substantially by race — how they view neighborhoods, police, schools — according to a new survey from Johns Hopkins University researchers.
Among the findings: Black residents of the Baltimore area were more likely to have lost a loved one to COVID and to experience issues with food insecurity and transportation.
The survey, which mirrors the previous results of others, is the first in what Johns Hopkins 21st Century Cities Initiative researchers say will be an annual survey of life around Baltimore that they hope will inform community members and policy makers about the region’s strengths and challenges. Researchers discussed their findings Tuesday afternoon.
