Abstract

This article proposes an analytical framework of neighborhood decline in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, grounded in evolutionary multilevel selection (MLS) theory. The methodology and results reveal that qualitative neighborhood change is endogenously determined through the actions of neighborhood households, but such that household actions and neighborhood sociospatial organization are shaped by externally driven sorting processes. Further, household behaviors are highly dependent on microlevel neighborhood contexts. These findings suggest that existing schools of neighborhood change interplay at multiple spatial resolutions showcases the hierarchical and evolutionary nature of cities
