This week we’re joined by Carrie Makarewicz, Assistant Professor at the University of Colorado at Denver, Prentiss Dantzler, Assistant Professor at Georgia State University, and Arlie Adkins, Associate Professor at The University of Arizona to talk about their paper in Housing Policy Debate: Another Look at Location Affordability: Understanding the Detailed Effects of Income and Urban Form on Housing and Transportation Expenditures. The paper looks at how households with varied incomes spend on housing and transportation based on location and it’s the most recent iteration of a debate about whether location impacts people’s transportation spending.
We also chat about the Panel Study of Income Dynamics, a continuously collected household dataset started in 1968, the idea of housing as critical infrastructure, and the equity implications of access to jobs and destinations.
You can read the paper by emailing Carrie or downloading from the journal site.
