This Cornell Research story focuses on Kim Weeden, the Jan Rock Zubrow ’77 Professor of the Social Sciences and director of the Center for the Study of Inequality, whose work focuses on inequality and opportunity in the United States and other industrialized countries.

“I’ve always been interested in occupations and work, which are fundamental to our lives, not only in terms of income but also to our identities,” Weeden says in the story. “Occupations are sources of prestige. They can affect our health, our children’s opportunities, our outlook on the world, and our politics in ways that are sometimes underappreciated.”
