Title: Assessing housing growth when census boundaries change

Author: Syphard, Alexandra D.; Stewart, Susan I.; McKeefry, Jason; Hammer, Roger B.; Fried, Jeremy S.; Holcomb, Sherry; Radeloff, Volker C.

Date: 2009

Source: International Journal of Geographic Information Systems. 23: 859-876.

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: The US Census provides the primary source of spatially explicit social data, but changing block boundaries complicate analyses of housing growth over time. We compared procedures for reconciling housing density data between 1990 and 2000 census block boundaries in order to assess the sensitivity of analytical methods to estimates of housing growth in Oregon. Estimates of housing growth varied substantially and were sensitive to the method of interpolation.

Keywords: US Census, housing density, interpolation, MAUP, census boundary, land use/land cover change
