Blacks Moving to Suburban Apartments. Changes in Formerly All-White Areas Aid School Desegregation. Staff Report 80-6.
Cloud, Olivia M.
This report, an analysis of the effects of housing patterns on school desegregation in Jefferson County, Kentucky, was based on data from Multiple Dwelling Reporting forms filed annually by owners and managers of 25 or more apartment units. High school attendance areas were used for geographic reference. Reports indicated that blacks are moving into suburban areas in increasing numbers and are renting more expensive apartments (compared to 1975 data). Fewer apartments were segregated in 1979 than in 1975. The movement made by blacks has had a positive effect in reducing the amount of busing needed to desegregate Jefferson County Schools. (MK)
