Question description

My urban area is the City of Atlanta so that should be the urban area the paper should be about

The project paper should be between ten to twelve pages, including tables, graphs and maps. Every student is required to pick a different urban area and explore a specific economic issue related the local labor or housing markets. There is a substantial economic literature on issues such as housing affordability, immigration, sprawl, gentrification or discrimination in housing and labor markets. The paper must be typed, double-spaced and the list complete of references should be provided. The basic outline is introduction, literature review, research problem, data and methods, results, conclusion and references.

Almost everyone in the class has already picked a metro area.

You can pick different topics on poverty, housing discrimination, immigration, housing affordability, and employment. F you are not sure about your topic you can investigate how the 2008 Economic Recession has affected different racial and ethnic groups in your metropolitan area. You can concentrate on three groups: White Americans, African Americans and non-black Hispanic/Latino population. You need to use 2000 and 2010 census data.

Go to http://factfinder2.census.gov/faces/nav/jsf/pages/index.xhtml website and click on “Advanced Search” “show me all”. It will take you to the following site: http://factfinder2.census.gov/faces/nav/jsf/pages/searchresults.xhtml?refresh=t

From the “Topics” section you should choose “data sets and then choose the following data sets:

2010 SF1 100% Data (771)

2010 SF2 100% Data (276)

2000 SF1 100% Data (600)

2000 SF2 100% Data (185)

2000 SF3 Sample Data (1,102)

Alternatively, if you want to get all your data in one file for 2010 and 2000 then get the following tables:

Section II: Calculate isolation index and dissimilarity index for the African American population. Did racial segregation increase or decrease in your metro area? Explain. You should uses Glaeser and Vigdor, 2001 paper for this part. Here is the link for this paper: http://www.brookings.edu/es/urban/census/glaeser.pdf.

As a starter you should read the reports titled “The State of the Nation’s Housing for 2010 and 2000. They are available from http://www.jchs.harvard.edu/research/state_nations_housing.
