Racial Transition and Public Policy. Policy Note P78-1.
Briefly reviewed in this paper is the literature on racial transition. The review is built around three questions: (1) Where does racial transition take place? (2) How does racial transition proceed in a single neighborhood? and (3) How does racial transition in one neighborhood relate to racial transition in other neighborhoods? Models and theories proposed by the literature cited are analyzed and discussed. Particular attention is given to how the literature deals with racial discrimination as a factor in racial transition. Implications of racial transition for public policy are discussed in terms of what the Federal government can do to deal with the racial aspects of the urban housing market. (Author/EB)
