Educational attainment and household location: the case of Chicago's lakefront

Abstract: The authors focus on the relationship between being a college graduate (that is, having a bachelor?s degree or higher) and household location in the city of Chicago?s lakefront neighborhoods, other parts of the city, and the suburbs in Illinois. Overall, their results indicate that being a college graduate is associated with living in the city?s lakefront neighborhoods relative to the suburbs. These results hold for non-Hispanic whites, blacks, and Hispanics across the metropolitan region.
