The Location and Racial Composition of Public Housing in the United States: An Analysis of the Racial Occupancy and Location of Public Housing Developments


Report Acceptance Date: December 1994 (112 pages)

Posted Date: November 28, 2022

This historic study examines the degree to which residents of public housing are concentrated in racially or economically segregated neighborhoods. In order to perform this analysis, HUD created the Public Housing Race and Location Data File, which matched 1993 demographic information for over 1,700 public housing projects to 1990 census data on the socioeconomic characteristics of each development's tract.

This report is part of the collection of scanned historical documents available to the public.
