THE SOCIO-ECONOMIC EFFECTS OF DISPLACEMENT OF PERSONS AND BUSINESS FIRMS IN MEMPHIS, TENNESSEE

THE EFFECTS ARE DISCUSSED OF DISPLACEMENT AND RELOCATION ON A NUMBER OF PEOPLE AND BUSINESSES WHOSE HOMES AND BUSINESS PLACES HAD BEEN ACQUIRED FOR THE CONSTRUCTION OF INTERSTATE 40 IN MEMPHIS, TENNESSEE. THE STATISTICAL DATA PRESENTED IN THE REPORT ARE BASED ON A QUESTIONNAIRE WHICH WAS ADMINISTERED TO A SAMPLE OF THE DISPLACEES. THE STATISTICAL RELIABILITY OF THE DATA HAS NOT BEEN DETERMINED AND THE ANALYSIS OF THE RESULTS IS NOT PROFOUND. CONSEQUENTLY, NO GENERALIZATIONS HAVE BEEN MADE BY THE RESEARCHERS. HOWEVER, THE STUDY SUPPLIES VALUABLE INFORMATION ON VARIOUS SOCIAL AND ECONOMIC CHARACTERISTICS OF THE DISPLACEES AND ON THE EFFECTS OF DISPLACEMENT ON THOSE WHO WERE INTERVIEWED. SUGGESTIONS FOR FUTURE RESEARCH IN THE FIELD OF DISPLACEMENT AND RELATED AREAS ARE PRESENTED, ALSO. /BPR/
