Displacement

Is displacement the same everywhere?

This project examines how displacement and gentrification vary across urban contexts and over time. Using the Panel Study of Income Dynamics (PSID) I look at how displacement rates are affected by local contextual factors. With this longitudinal dataset, I additionally explore the effects of displacement on low-income households.

Where do the displaced go?

This project traces pathways of mobility for displaced New York City residents. Using network analysis of the New York City Housing and Vacancy Survey. I find that every neighborhood in NYC is both a sender and receiver of displaced people, and that some are displaced from their home, yet find ways to stay in their neighborhood.
