Tolnay, Stewart E.; Crowder, Kyle D.; Adelman, Robert M.
Social Forces, v78 n3 p989-1015 Mar 2000
Analysis of the 1970 Neighborhood Characteristics Public Use Microdata Sample indicates that recent (1965-70) southern Black migrants to the North resided in the "best" neighborhoods (less poverty, segregation, and family instability), while earlier Black migrants lived in the worst neighborhoods. Recent migrants also received the greatest locational returns to human capital characteristics (education, employment). (Contains 56 references.) (Author/SV)
