Evaluating and Mitigating the Impact of Evictions and Other Housing Insecurity Issues Over Health and Child Development in North Carolina

The overall goal of this project is to develop an understanding of the effects of housing insecurity on families in Durham County and the conditions and policies that contribute to housing insecurity. We will work with our community partners to identify policies and services that influence the impact of housing insecurity in our community.

To inform evidence-based policies and to help communities best promote population-level health, this study will address the following three aims:

  1. To assess patterns of population movement in Durham County and the relationship of these patterns with housing insecurity
  2. To examine the effects of housing insecurity and evictions on the education of children in Durham County
  3. To examine the effects of housing insecurity and evictions on healthcare utilization and health status
