Educational Attainment and Household Location: The Case of Chicago’s Lakefront
Last Updated: 11/03/10

The authors focus on the relationship between being a college graduate (that is, having a bachelor’s degree or higher) and household location in the city of Chicago’s lakefront neighborhoods, other parts of the city, and the suburbs in Illinois. Overall, their results indicate that being a college graduate is associated with living in the city’s lakefront neighborhoods relative to the suburbs. These results hold for non-Hispanic whites, blacks, and Hispanics across the metropolitan region.
