Methodologies We Are Using

  • Exploring different ways to conceptualize and operationalize ‘neighborhood’
  • Leveraging ‘big data’ to better understand aspects of community social organization
  • Measuring activity spaces using GPS, survey, and ethnographic methods
  • Reconfiguring census data with GIS tools to study segregation at multiple geographic scales
  • Modeling changes in ethnoracial diversity as a spatial diffusion process
  • Using spatial and network analytic techniques to capture neighborhood exposures and effects
