Twin Cities Commuting Patterns
The Commuting Patterns and Minority Suburbanization in the Twin Cities project is a regional analysis using a new lens, the geography of opportunity. The decentralization of jobs in the Twin Cities region is undermining access to jobs for its most vulnerable populations. The commuting patterns can be represented in map form, allowing us to visualize how congestion is tightening its grip on the region. And critical to our research are the social equity implications of the way the Twin Cities region is developing.
Our research shows that employment has grown increasingly unclustered over the past two decades. There are many implications of unclustered jobs for land use, transportation and access to opportunities by race.
