Richie Zweigenhaft Publishes Article on Diversity and Wealth in Congress

Richie Zweigenhaft's article, "Diversity and Wealth in Congress Today," has been published by The Society Pages, an open-access social science project headquartered in the Department of Sociology at the University of Minnesota.

Richie's article compares data on the 92nd Congress based on research that he did while working for Ralph Nader in 1972 with more current (2016) data on the 115th Congress (those elected in 2016), gathered by Roll Call magazine.  The article looks at issues of diversity and patterns of wealth among those in the House and the Senate.
