Measuring Neighborhood Investments: Urban Quality of Life Expenditures by Race
Community choice is a very important household decision since it represents an investment in community attributes that can have a significant impact on the quality of life of all household members, particularly influencing the future prospects of children. In this paper, 1990 Census data are used to rank communities in Los Angeles County. We study the community choice of new migrants and find that controlling for income, black and Hispanic households consume significantly less in community attributes. Potential explanations for this gap are explored.
