Mapping Displacement Pressure in Chicago

In order to help support ongoing and future public investment decisions and guide practical and proactive responses to preserving housing affordability in surrounding neighborhoods, IHS developed an interactive tool that visualizes neighborhood-level displacement risk and housing affordability pressures across the City. The tool brings together housing market and demographic information needed to begin an evaluation of the potential displacement risk surrounding a proposed project and to help inform conversations about gentrification and displacement throughout the City.
