Crossing the Great Divide: Race and Preferences for Living in the City versus the Suburbs.
Sigelman, Lee; Henig, Jeffrey R.
Urban Affairs Review, v37 n1 p3-18 Sep 2001
Surveyed African American and White Washington, D.C. residents regarding the advantages of urban versus suburban living and their overall preferences for the city versus suburbs. Though a broad transracial consensus prevailed about the pluses and minuses of city versus suburban life, some substantial differences emerged. The two groups weighed these factors differently in forming preferences about where to live. (SM)
