The Great Divide: What income inequality means to Connecticut voters
November 8, 2012 - 4:14pm

On election day, 2012, GlobalPost went to Bridgeport and Greenwich to ask voters how income inequality affects their daily lives and what they want their newly elected leaders to do about it.

The US Census Bureau data used to calculate the Gini coefficient, which measures inequality, lists the area between Greenwich and Bridgeport as one of the most unequal out of 362 major American metropolitan areas. The Gini coefficient measures income inequality, ranging from .00 (totally equal) to 1.00 (most unequal). The area bounded by Bridgeport to the north and Greenwich to the south scored a .537, one of the highest scores in the country, and almost exactly the same as Bangkok, Thailand's Gini coefficient.
