CLACLS: The Latino Data Project



CLACLS announces the launch of our new LDP Urban Series. With a focus on gentrification and inequality, the reports reveal the dynamic changes taking place across New York City and its surrounding areas since 1990.

The reports analyze population trends among Latinos and other racial/ethnic groups, looking at income inequality, educational attainment, poverty, and citizenship status, among other categories. The first in the LDP Urban Series takes a closer look at Northern Queens.


The findings shown in the graph above may come as a surprise to some. In short, the Latino community of Jackson Heights/Corona is not being displaced in any meaningful way.
