Report Acceptance Date: October 1991 (102 pages)

Posted Date: April 16, 2021

This historic report analyzes data collected as part of the 1989 Housing Discrimination Study (HDS) to estimate the frequency and severity of steering, the phenomena in which Black and Hispanic homebuyers are "steered" away from primarily white neighborhoods and instead offered housing in more integrated or less affluent neighborhoods. The research is based on over 2,100 paired-testing sales audits conducted in 25 metropolitan areas.

This report is part of the collection of scanned historical documents available to the public.
