Abstract
This study examines neighborhood cohesion in a racially and economically integrated neighborhood in Dayton, Ohio. The authors compare results of surveys conducted in 1984 and 1990. This was a period when the neighborhood witnessed a number of significant changes, including a marked increase in African-American residents, a decrease in home ownership and an increase in vacant units, and an increase in crime. Neighborhood cohesion appeared to remain strong in 1990, although not as strong as in 1984. Despite these changes, appreciation for racial diversity increased significantly during the period, most markedly among new white residents of the area.
