Mark McDaniel–PI. The project will formulate a research design and agenda that will effectively frame a better understanding of the housing needs of Latinos in North Carolina, using a combination of quantitative and qualitative research methodologies to address these issues. To accomplish this, the research team will: actively engage state and local stakeholders and constituencies early in the research process to inform and shape a research agenda that is framed appropriately and is responsive to Latino constituencies; build an empirical picture of housing needs and conditions for North Carolina’s Latino community using Census, American Community Survey and other current data sources; translate complicated quantitative data sets into accessible materials; and utilize a diverse and bilingual staff to develop culturally appropriate qualitative research instruments and facilitate a set of focus groups that will add another rich layer of analysis to the previous phases of work.
