Housing Displacement in Brooklyn - Preliminary Findings

Aviva Zeltzer-Zubida

Department of Sociology

June 2006


Slide2 l.jpg

  • Big Questions:

    • Are people in Brooklyn experiencing housing displacement?

    • If so, where does it happen?

    • If so, who does it happen to?

    • If so, where do the people go?

  • Big Problems:

    • It is very hard to measure housing displacement in a large scale, systematic way (no data, local phenomenon).

    • There is relatively little research on the topic.

  • Little Solutions:

    • Use 2000 census data to explore patterns related to housing displacement in Brooklyn.

    • Compare with 1990 census data to observe changes across time.

    • Identify tracts where displacement happened or might happen in the future and conduct qualitative studies.

Segregated diversity l.jpg
Segregated Diversity

  • Preliminary data analysis of the 2000 census suggests that although, in general, Brooklyn in a diverse borough, it is segregated at the tract level.

  • The correlation between the different characteristics of the tracts suggests that the segregation is multi-faceted.

  • Demographic characteristics, Residence characteristics and Housing costs seem to vary simultaneously.

  • Further analysis points to the existence of 4 major types of tracts in Brooklyn.

  • For lack of better names, they will be called – type 1,2,3 and 4. Your help with names will be appreciated…

So where do we go from here?

  • Explore further the relationship between social segregation and the risk of housing displacement

    • Compare 2000 data with previous years

    • Compare Brooklyn with other boroughs and cities

    • Conduct qualitative studies of specific locations

    • Think about policy implications and action plans...
