The Terner Center for Housing Innovation at UC Berkeley and the Center for California Real Estate (CCRE) have launched a new working paper series commissioning national experts to answer a range of relevant research and policy questions using a rich new data resource from a local land use and housing survey the Terner Center has been fielding in California over the past year. 

Jargowsky and Hayes’ proposed research entitled, Exclusionary Zoning Policies and School Segregation will employ the data from the Terner Residential Land Use Survey and the Stanford Education Data Archive to examine the contribution of zoning and other land use policies to school segregation in California, estimating models to address the following questions:

 How much of the variation in racial segregation within and between California school districts can be explained by restrictive land use policies?

 How much of the variation in income segregation within and between California school districts can be explained by restrictive land use policies?
