Neighborhood Effects

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Social scientists have long been concerned with the role of space in systems of stratification. While scholars in the field of 'neighborhood effects' have typically focused on how a community affects the life chances of its residents, we argue for a broader view of neighborhood effects that considers how spatial stratification serves to maintain and reproduce inequality across multiple dimensions. This article outlines major theoretical arguments exploring how local residential contexts affect social and economic outcomes at the level of individuals and communities, drawing attention to the empirical challenges to measuring neighborhood effects.
