1. Wheeler, Christopher, 1984-. Finding a place to call home: land use regulation and housing affordability in metropolitan America.

Degree: PhD, Public Affairs, 2017, Rutgers University

The housing affordability literature has had much to say on the underlying trends and influences on housing affordability over time. However today there remain only a few studies that examine the influence of land-use regulation on housing affordability. Even more uncommon is a focus on the distributional impact of such regulation on housing affordability by race and income, and across space within metropolitan areas. Moreover, the models commonly used in the literature often omit important covariates and are at great risk of significant left-out variable bias. Utilizing a cross-sectional regression design analyzing existing Wharton Residential Land Use Regulation Survey data, land use regulation survey data developed by Pendall, Puentes, and Martin (2006), and 1980-2014 Decennial Census and American Community Survey data, this dissertation charts recent housing affordability trends and illuminates the impact of various kinds of exclusionary land use regulation on housing affordability by housing tenure, race, and income.

2. Jovanovski, Straso, 1982-. Concentrated poverty, racial segregation, and health: an analysis of metropolitan areas.

Degree: PhD, Health outcomes, 2019, Rutgers University

Individual poverty has long been linked to poor health. With the increased importance of the social determinants of health, the literature on neighborhood effects has attempted to explain the independent effect on health of the ecological environment of daily life in order to lessen persistent health inequalities. Extant research on the topic of neighborhood effects has fallen short in addressing the problem of selection bias. This study overcomes this with a multilevel design modelling individual health outcomes aggregated at the metropolitan level as a function of metropolitan level poverty, poverty concentration, and segregation, controlling for individual and household level characteristics. I further compute spatial equivalents for poverty concentration and segregation at the metro level. The results suggest the spatial arrangement of poverty, at a set level of aspatial concentration, worsens health for lower income individuals. The aspatial measure of segregation, at a set level of spatial arrangement of race and ethnicity, worsens health for Hispanics, and Native Americans. Importantly, the study uncovers some profound differences in the two sets of aspatial and explicitly spatial metro level measures: what they measure, how they interact, and the implications for their use.

3. Clayton, Spencer T., 1983. Tax abatements and gentrification: how government policy disrupts communities.

Degree: PhD, Gentrification  – Pennsylvania  – Philadelphia, 2019, Rutgers University

Urban municipal governments often face challenges when redeveloping their distressed centers. In 2000, the City Council of Philadelphia passed a series of bills modifying its existing residential tax abatement policies to expand their eligibility and to make them last for ten years. The timing of the passage of these bills also corresponded with Mayor John Street’s Neighborhood Transformation Initiative (NTI), which aimed to prepare land for redevelopment. The combination of the revised abatement policies and NTI created a series of competing interests for politicians, business owners, and community organizations. Utilizing a methodological design consisting a historical critical analysis based on urban regime theory, GIS, and regression analysis, this dissertation profiles the formulation, implementation, and impact of Philadelphia’s tax abatement policies from 2000 to 2010. It also proposes a mechanism by which government policies can facilitate or accelerate gentrification. Results show support for a relationship between the incidence of tax abatements and gentrification.
