Homelessness and the Relationship between Race and Socioeconomic Status


This is the final project for GIS Fall 2020. Joe and I explored the relationship between median income, racial diversity and the number of people experiencing homelessness. Looking at specific examples, in Beverly Hills the median income is $136,824 and the racial makeup of the area is mostly white. While in Downtown, Los Angeles, the median income is $43,135 and the racial make up is very diverse. Downtown has one of the highest populations of people experiencing homelessness. Based on our research, we concluded that there is a relationship between racial diversity, median income and people experiencing homelessness.
