Housing Discrimination Against Racial and Ethnic Minorities 2012
Claudia Aranda (au)
In the 20th century, discrimination by private real estate agents and rental property owners helped establish and sustain stark patterns of housing and neighborhood inequality. Since the late 1970s, the Dept. of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has rigorously monitored trends in racial and ethnic discrimination in both rental and sales markets approx. once each decade through a series of nationwide paired-testing studies. This report presents findings from the 4th such study, which applied paired-testing methodology in 28 metropolitan areas to measure the incidence and forms of discrimination experienced by Black, Hispanic, and Asian renters and homebuyers. When well-qualified minority homeseekers contact housing providers to inquire about recently advertised housing units, they generally are just as likely as equally qualified white homeseekers to get an appointment and learn about at least one available housing unit. However, when differences in treatment occur, white homeseekers are more likely to be favored than minorities. Most important, minority homeseekers are told about and shown fewer homes and apartments than whites. Figures and tables. This is a print on demand report.
