Recent growth in the regional economy and pressure on the housing market has led to displacement of residents and businesses when neighborhood conditions have forced residents to move.

This tool is used to identify what neighborhoods in the region are at higher risk of displacement so policy makers can prevent it from happening in the future. 

Displacement risk is a composite of indicators representing five elements of neighborhood displacement risks: socio-demographics, transportation qualities, neighborhood characteristics, housing, and civic engagement.

The data from these five displacement indicators were compiled into a comprehensive index of displacement risk for all census tracts in the region.
