︎︎︎ Spatial Determinants of Vacancy Analysis


Developed as a capstone course project, analyses within this report attempt to uncover the major driving factors which contribute to the vacancy status of properties in Cleveland, Ohio. Initial assessments are taken at the neighborhood level using a parcel-level analysis to provide more granular insight into vacancy status. These are then aggregated up to the block group level to include a variety of social and economic factors not available at the parcel-level scale. Spatial regression is performed to determine the effect that a variety of independent social, economic, and environmental variables have on vacancy rates.
