An Economic Analysis of Black-White Disparities in NYPD's Stop and Frisk Program
NBER Working Paper No. 18803
We analyze data on NYPD's "stop and frisk program" in an effort to identify racial bias on the part of the police officers making the stops. We find that the officers are not biased against African Americans relative to whites, because the latter are being stopped despite being a "less productive stop" for a police officer.
