Latino Children and White Out-Migration from New Gateway School Districts
Matthew Hall, Policy Analysis and Management

Tuesday, October 28, 2014
12:00PM-1:00PM
Beebe Hall, 2nd floor conference room


This talk is open to all. Lunch will be served. Metered parking is available in the Plantations lot across the road from Beebe Hall.

In his talk, Matthew Hall will share how his research team used three decades of demographic data on U.S. school districts to assess the impact of growing Latino child populations on the out-migration of white adults. Results from analysis indicate that in ‘new’ Latino school districts (where their presence is relatively recent), growing Latino child populations are associated with the out-migration of whites, especially older ones.

Matthew Hall, assistant professor, Policy Analysis and Management, is a demographer specializing in immigration, segregation, housing, and racial/ethnic inequality. His current research is directed at understanding immigrant incorporation in new destination areas, the role of undocumented status on immigrant economic and residential well-being, and the impact of the foreclosure crisis on patterns of neighborhood change. He teaches courses in statistics, immigration, and spatial analysis.
