Abstract

<p>We investigated racial/ethnic differences in high return investment ownership using the 2010 Survey of Consumer Finances (SCF). Logistic regression analysis shows that even after controlling for income, risk tolerance, education, and other factors, Black and Hispanic households are less likely to hold high return investments than White households, but Asian/Other households are not different from White households. Based on results from decomposition methods, if the households with Black and with Hispanic respondents have the same characteristics and risk tolerance as White households, the racial/ethnic gap in high return investment ownership would be narrowed, but still exists. The Fairlie decomposition method might be more reasonable to use for decomposition analyses than the Blinder-Oaxaca method.</p>
