The Neighbourhood Contact Hypothesis: Evidence from the Multicity Study of Urban Inequality.
Ihlanfeldt, Keith R.; Scafidi, Benjamin P.
Urban Studies, v39 n4 p619-41 Apr 2002
Examines the neighborhood contact hypothesis, which states that interracial neighborhood contact helps break down prejudice. Data from the Multicity Study of Urban Inequality indicate that neighborhood contact affects the attitudes of Whites towards Blacks only if this contact is with Blacks of the same or higher social status. Contact with white neighbors affects the attitudes of Blacks regardless of the social status of participating Whites. (SM)
