Combining sociological theory & data science
to understand demographic disparities &
neighborhood drivers of evictions.

Our interdiscplinary reserach team examines court records and Sheriff
warrants to identify race, ethnic, and sex disparities of evicted renters.
Our goal is to expand public and scholarly knowledge by identifying
the prevalence and drivers of evictions in under-studied regions,
providing evidence-based research for policy reform.
