The Brookings Urban Markets Initiative: Using information to drive change
AbstractUrban residents are more likely than their suburban counterparts to be underserved by retail services. The implications for urban residents and urban communities are far reaching. Recent research has shown that the costs of the basics—such as food, clothing, and even insurance—are often higher for low- to moderate-income residents. Appropriate access to goods and retail services must be a part of any agenda to create healthy communities. This article outlines the role of information as a critical part of the framework for urban retail success benefiting residents, communities, and the private sector.
