Description

Research shows that having a distinctively black name doesn’t affect your economic future. But what is the day-to-day reality of living with such a name? Marijuana Pepsi Vandyck, a newly-minted Ph.D., is well-qualified to answer this question. Her verdict: the data don’t tell the whole story.

Trent Birner She admits at the beginning of the podcast that this is a qualitative analysis, not a quantitative analysis. Qualitative analysis always has a small sample size. It is a limitation to the research and she admits that, but that is why they bring up the previous podcast that covered the quantitative analysis of the same subject.

White Utah Mormons commonly use "distinctive black sounding names" and I wonder if their data has ever been used in these studies?
