BUS ROUTE 29 2000 TO 2010 COMMUNITY VITALITY

THE HUNCH:

The Chicago Housing Authority severely affected community vitality by demolishing Housing Projects between 2000 and 2010.

Community Vitality measured with:
CTA ridership
Per Capita Income
Population

It is difficult to draw a correlation between the CHA initiative of public housing destruction and any significant changes in neighborhood quality.

The values are too divergent to draw a conclusion. However, this was a great exercise for learning how to use object-relational database management system, generate spatial queries and effectively render geographic information all with open-source software!!
