Brookings Urban Center Call for Paper Proposals

The Brookings Institution

The Brookings Institution Center on Urban and Metropolitan Policy is soliciting proposals for papers that rely primarily on Census data to examine demographic, social, economic, and policy issues affecting metropolitan areas. The Census Bureau will begin releasing 2000 sample data in the summer of 2002. The Urban Center is producing a series of trend reports that will illustrate how urban and suburban America has changed in the last two decades.

The Urban Center is particularly interested in brief, descriptive analyses that will be accessible to urban leaders, practitioners, researchers and the media on population, income, housing, employment, commuting and other trends using 2000 Census data and other appropriate years and datasets. Top priority will be given to proposals that are comparative across metropolitan areas (top 100), within metropolitan areas and across components of metro areas (i.e., central cities, suburbs, etc) and those that emphasize spatial patterns. Selected papers will be published in the Brookings Urban Center trend series.
