Neighborhood Diversity Characteristics in Iowa and Their Implications for Home Loans and Business Investment


  • Eathington, Liesl
  • Swenson, David A.


The geographic concentration of the state’s minority population within a relatively small number of diverse neighborhoods suggests an additional important dimension for analysis and begs an important question: How do these racially and ethnically diverse neighborhoods differ from less diverse areas of the state? Furthermore, what are the implications for these concentrations of racial or ethnic diversity for homeownership and business development?
