Abstract

This research presents an approach to the spatio-temporal analysis of commuting patterns by ethnic-ity in Atlanta. In general, blacks and Latinos have more clustered residential patterns in the central city and inner suburbs, whereas whites’ housing locations are more dispersed throughout the suburbs and exurbs. Compared to blacks, Latinos’ housing and job locations are somewhat more suburbanized, thanks to the availability of low-paying job opportunities in various suburban areas. Compared to whites, Latinos and blacks tend to be more geographically constrained in both housing and job locations
