Gentrification & Subsidized Housing

// Master’s Thesis. 2016, Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation, Columbia University.

This study examined factors associated with gentrification and their relationship with opt-out rate of subsidized rental housing programs in New York City.

Through a statistical logistic regression model, this study investigated if factors associated with gentrification, such as median income, nearby property prices and other neighborhood conditions, have bigger impacts on owner’ decisions to stay or leave subsidy programs than other factors that generally affect property prices or owner’s decision to change property prices.
