Hummel's article accepted for publication in peer-reviewed journal


Feb. 10, 2020

Daniel Hummel, a Slippery Rock University assistant professor of philanthropy, nonprofit leadership and public affairs, will have a research article published in an upcoming issue of Local Economy, a peer-reviewed journal for policy analysts, researchers and practitioners concerned with place-based policies for economic development, regeneration and human development.

Hummel's article, titled "The effects of population and housing density in urban areas on income in the United States," considers the benefits and costs of urban density with a specific focus on the effect of people's incomes. Among Hummel's conclusions is that, in many urban areas in the U.S., sprawl and population decline have reduced urban density and eroded some of the benefits of urban life.
