Seminario IECON: "Racial Discrimination and Housing Outcomes in the United States Rental Market"

Presenta Ignacio Sarmiento-Barbieri (Universidad de los Andes) en coautoria con Peter Christensen y Christopher Timmins.

We report evidence from the largest correspondence study conducted to date in the rental housing market, encompassing 50 major cities in the U.S. The study reveals that African American and Hispanic/LatinX renters continue to face discriminatory constraints in most metropolitan markets, though we find a low correlation in constraints facing the two groups even in a uniform sample of listings. Discriminatory constraints are stronger in cities with higher levels of residential segregation and, for African American renters, correlate with persistent gaps in income mobility. Finally, we find that discriminatory constraints detected in a correspondence experiment predict rental housing outcomes.
