About the Talk: This study combines data from the 1969-2009 waves of the Panel Study of Income Dynamics (PSID) with tract-level decennial census data to explore hypotheses regarding racial differences in adolescent neighborhood context and adult residential attainment for black and non-Hispanic white householders. Theories of racial differences in adult residential location decisions implicate a combination of economic constraints, neighborhood preferences and discrimination. Using a life course perspective, the authors examine how these theories explain differences in adult residential decisions and how location decisions are molded by residential histories formed in adolescence and developed throughout adulthood.
