Migration Patterns and the Growth of High-Poverty Neighborhoods, 1970-1990.
Quillian, Lincoln
American Journal of Sociology, v105 n1 p1-37 Jul 1999
Examines why the number of high-poverty neighborhoods in U.S. cities has increased since 1970 by using geocoded data from the Panel Study of Income Dynamics. Suggests that migration of the non-poor from the poor played a key role in forming new poor urban neighborhoods during the 1970s and 1980s. (CMK)
