This is the saddest article ever. It needs to be remade.

Possible Edits[edit]

At the moment, the Wikipedia article for this topic does not reflect the scope of academic literature currently available. I would like to expand the definition provided here, as well as add connections to the topics of employment, healthcare, education, economic development, and other forms of demographic-based inequalities.

I've outlined some of my initial ideas for this on my user page. NP824 (talk) 07:39, 14 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Summary of Changes[edit]

I've written sections on Determinants and Measurements, updated the Lead section, added this article to WikiProject Economics, and included relevant citations from academic journals. I've also reformatted the article to include a See Also section, and Further Reading has been made a sub-section within this.
