This panel focuses on different aspects of the constrained residential choices of racial and income subgroups.  The four papers provide new empirical findings on the related questions of household formation, housing supply, and neighborhood differentiation.  Taken together, the papers permit a more complete understanding of the changing demography of neighborhoods in U.S. metropolitan areas and the targets for policy action.
