Dr. Stephen Sills, Center for Housing and Community Studies, received new funding from the City of High Point for a “Housing Market Segmentation Study for the City of High Point.” Market segmentation is a process of analysis that divides an area by natural geographic bounds as well as by demographic, social, economic, political, and cultural divisions. The analysis will rely on data at the individual, neighborhood, and community levels. The goal of this pilot project is to create a neighborhood condition index for High Point of the based on a variety of factors that influence the stability of a neighborhood.
