Abstract: Since the 1960s government policy makers have favored dispersed, rather than high-density public housing development. Previous research on such developments has focused on multi-family structures. This article reports the findings of a study of one and two-family houses managed by the housing authority in Cleveland, Ohio. The authors provide new perspectives on the effects of public housing on neighboring residential property values.
