Synopsis

This case study of three United States cities examines census data, institutional policy, and community housing market analyses to illustrate the impact of military and institutional policies on metropolitan level segregation and other socioeconomic characteristics. This work should appeal to scholars working in fields of sociology and urban development. This study investigates the significance of military institutions and their impact on metropolitan level racial and ethnic segregation. Military bases are institutions that draw large numbers of outsiders, namely young males, aged 18-24. By examining the level of segregation, racial composition, and neighborhood characteristics, in neighborhoods considered to be highly impacted by a military institution, the objectives are: to demonstrate an institutional effect on segregation at the metropolitan-level; and to assess the social and geographic impact of military institutions in locations where they are dominant. To achieve these objectives, U.S. census data, institutional policy, and community housing market analyses are examined to illustrate the impact of military and institutional policies on metropolitan level segregation and other socioeconomic characteristics.
