The Eviction Lab at Princeton University has launched a new nationwide database of eviction statistics. The launch of the database follows the research of Matthew Desmond, author of Evicted.
The database provides aggregates data in maps, charts, and reports at the national, state, and town level. Among other data, users are able to access information on poverty rates, rent burdens, and race data.
Of the 100 large United States cities with the highest rates of evictions, Connecticut is represented by four cities:
- Waterbury, ranked #22 with an eviction rate of 6.1%;
- Hartford, ranked #29 with an eviction rate of 5.73%;
- Bridgeport, ranked #39 with an eviction rate of 5.03%; and
- New Haven, ranked #69 with an eviction rate of 4.05%.
