Public housing was a common feature in urban areas across America. Many poor people that lived in these large, high-rise developments called these places home. Still, in terms of housing assistance programs, many issues concerning mobility are still unanswered. Prentiss Dantzler, a doctoral candidate in the public affairs program, seeks to understand the dynamics of public housing and mobility. Under the supervision of Paul Jargowsky, Ph.D. and the support of the Center for Urban Research and Education (CURE), Dantzler has just received approval from the Institute for Social Research at the University of Michigan-Ann Arbor for access to restricted data files from the Panel Survey of Income Dynamics (PSID). Dantzler will use the PSID in his dissertation to analyze individual characteristics, local economic and housing conditions, and neighborhood social environments in relation to public housing exits. Dantzler is currently attending a summer research workshop at the Interuniversity Consortium for Political and Social Research at the University of Michigan supported through the Department of Public Policy and Administration at Rutgers-Camden.
