CCSS Grant for A New Picture of Segregation


We are excited to announce a grant from the Cornell Center for Social Sciences to continue our project, "A New Picture of Segregation".
This phase of our ongoing research project on location data expands on existing research to develop a nationwide understanding of the dynamic nature of racial and ethnic segregation in the United States using GPS data from mobile phone applications (MPA). The long-term aim of this research is to shed empirical light on a central claim in contemporary affordable housing policy in the United States, that the deconcentration of poverty at the neighborhood level leads to opportunities for social interaction and mobility, given that the mechanism linking a diversity of residential context to realized diverse social exposure and interaction has not been clarified
