New research by University of Vermont economist Stephanie Seguino reveals notable disparities in how police officers across Vermont treat drivers by race.

The study which found racial disparities in traffic stops, searches, arrests and outcomes, was covered widely in Yahoo News, Fox News, AP News, Washington Post, and Seattle Times , Vermont Public Radio, Burlington Free Press, Vermont Biz, and WCAX TV.

Seguino, a Gund Fellow from the UVM College of Arts and Sciences, also recently released new data suggesting significant racial disparities in South Burlington schools and policing. Her research was covered by the Burlington Free Press, Vermont Public Radio, Vermont Cynic, Vermont Digger, and Valley News.
