Residential Abandonment: The Tenement Landlord Revisited

By George Sternlieb; Robert W. Burchell | Go to book overview

Appendix 1

METHODOLOGY

Two basic data sources have been employed through the bulk of this study: gross statistics on the City of Newark, obtained either from the U.S. Census or local and state records and sample statistics obtained from interviews of Newark property owners in 1964 and 1971. The methodology which follows presents the procedural processes of gathering and manipulating these data. This appendix proceeds from a discussion of data available for the city at large to how these varying bodies of data were refined via regression and factor analyses. Further on, the sample data are discussed as well as the interview instrument and the training of interviewers.


GROSS CITYWIDE DATA AT A POINT IN TIME

Abandonment Data

In order to obtain gross figures on citywide abandonment in Newark, recurring fire department surveys of vacant buildings, prepared by fire inspectors within the Division of Combustibles, were utilized. The fire department's inventory of vacant buildings is kept current through the initiation of a Kardex file card for every structure observed vacant on a fire inspector's daily rounds and the refiling of this card in a "razed building file" if the structure is demolished publicly or privately, or completely destroyed through fire. To this list were added a small number of additional abandoned buildings observed by the Newark Planning Department in a survey in 1970, which were not already included on the fire department's list of vacant buildings.
