Abstract

This report examines development and inequality via the lens of residential segregation and suburbanization in the United States. Primarily focusing on development post-World War II, this paper provides a historical analysis of how specific policies around housing and urban planning have contributed to social inequity in the United States. A brief discussion of how these policies have changed over time and their modern implications is included. With a specific focus on Austin, TX, this report also reviews the further effects of residential segregation on other areas such as education, socioeconomic mobility, and more.
