Reduced Inequalities in the US

UN Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 10, Reduced Inequalities, aims to reduce inequality within and among countries by 2030. This includes reducing income inequality and promoting universal social, political, and economic inclusion. It also means adopting legislation and policies that protect people from discrimination and ensuring equal opportunity for resources like housing and employment.

The US has the highest level of income inequality of countries with similar economies.

Inequality in the US goes beyond just income, and is often interlinked with discrimination and lack of social, political, and economic inclusion based on personal characteristics. For example, 1 in 4 LGBTQA+ people report experiencing discrimination in the US. These exclusions result in far reaching consequences for a person's financial and personal wellbeing - from lack of education and work opportunities, to unequal personal wealth, pay gaps, and challenges accessing medical or other social services. Older workers, migrants and refugees, women, minorities, and people with disabilities are particularly impacted by these inequalities.

Use the tool below to view industry, innovation, and inequality-related indicators nationally or by state, as well as an overview of the more than 28,300 nonprofits organizations that work on addressing related issues in the US. You can also discover 535 products and services in our Tech for Good Directory related to immigration, bias and discrimination, income inequality and other key areas of diversity and inclusion.

Notes:

* Public Accommodations are government and private entities that offer goods and services to the general public such as courthouses, libraries, post offices, restaurants, hotels, and theaters.

** These states investigate discrimination complaints based on the Bostock Rationale (from the Supreme Court Case Bostock v. Clayton County, Georgia) that sexual orientation and gender identity discrimination are prohibited under federal sex-based employment protections.

*** The EEOC (US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission) is responsible for enforcing federal laws that make it illegal to discriminate against a job applicant or an employee because of the person’s race, color, religion, sex (including pregnancy, transgender status, and sexual orientation), national origin, age (40 or older), disability or genetic information.
