NCSG Researchers Examine How Diverse Housing May Benefit a Community
Arnab Chakraborty and Andrew McMillan published a study in the Journal of Planning Education and Research for their work examining housing diversity. Arnab Chakraborty is an NCSG affiliate based at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Andrew McMillan is a Post-Doctoral Researcher based at the University of Maryland, College Park. The authors explore how diverse housing affected foreclosure rates within a community during the great recession when national home foreclosure rates peaked. They further compare this rate to home foreclosure trends after the peak and conclude that zoning communities for diversity may lead to greater stability.
This project was funded by a grant from the National Science Foundation.
