Are Americańˇ╗s Inner Cities Competitive?: Evidence from the 2000s
Daniel A. Hartley (au); Nikhil Kaza (au); T. William Lester (au)
There has been growing evidence of a residential resurgence in urban neighborhoods. Yet, there is less evidence on the competitiveness of inner cities for employment. The authors document the trends in net employment growth and find that inner cities gained over 1.8 million jobs between 2002 and 2011 at a rate comparable to suburban areas. They also find a significant number of inner cities are competitive over this period ńˇţ increasing their share of metropolitan employment in 120 out of 281 MSAs. The authors also describe the pattern of job growth within the inner city, finding that tracts that grew faster tended to be closer to downtown, with access to transit, and adjacent to areas with higher population growth. However, tracts with higher poverty rates experienced less job growth, indicating that barriers still exist in the inner city. Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
