Race, Ethnicity, and Minority Housing in the United States

By Jamshid A. Momeni | Go to book overview
estimate black-white differences in the probability of ownership, equation (1) can be expressed as
(2)

Note that we have inserted mean values for the variables other than race in equation (2), in order to gauge black-white difference for otherwise "average" households. For whites, equation (2) is then evaluated with β8 set equal to zero to give a net probability of ownership for whites of .750. For blacks, equation (2) is evaluated with β8 set equal to 1, which gives a net probability of ownership for blacks of .645.

This contrasts with Kain and Quigley (b) retention of the household composition variables in their "full models" of housing expenditures. However, these variables have no statistically significant effects on home value in their analyses. Similarly, if our own models of home value below are expanded to include family composition, none of the composition measures has any effect on the dependent variable.
9.
To the extent that there is a tendency for undervaluing to increase with socioeconomic status, the estimated effects of earned family income and head of household's SEI will be biased downward. The exact size of any such bias is not particularly important for our analysis, given that we are concerned primarily with race differences, but Kain and Quigley's evidence suggests that the bias would be marginal.
10.
In view of the race-region interaction and the fact that St. Louis is a nonsouthern city, we performed an additional test, to check if the race-income interaction found in St. Louis holds throughout the non-South. We added a race-income interaction term to the basic model in the first column of Table 3.2, and estimated this revised model separately for the South and the non-South. The estimates provided no evidence for any region-specific race-income interactions.
11.
Kain and Quigley (b, 299) calculate that in St. Louis, comparable owner- occupied dwellings cost 5 to 6 percent more in ghetto than in non-ghetto neighborhoods. They also demonstrate that St. Louis blacks have lower quality housing than comparable whites. Further research is needed to examine directly the relationship between home value and quality of home for blacks and whites.
