Who’s Dissatisfied? Race and Ethnic Differences in Residential Dissatisfaction and Migration, 2010 - 2011

Component ID: #ti1491764752


Using longitudinal data from the Survey of Income and Program Participation (SIPP), I examine race and ethnic differences in the likelihood of reporting unfavorable housing, neighborhood, and local services along with whether individuals move upon expressing residential dissatisfaction. The first portion of the analysis looks at the relationship between individual socio-demographic statuses and place characteristics on the residential dissatisfaction of Whites, Blacks, and Hispanics. Housing tenure, duration of residence, home equity, and social and economic characteristics are included as measures of individual statuses. The second section of the analysis focuses on the impact of individual statuses, place characteristics, and residential dissatisfaction on the migration behavior of these race and ethnic groups. Census tract of residence combined with aggregated tract data on neighborhood socioeconomic status and housing supply from the American Community Survey (ACS) serve as place characteristics.
