Hello Helen:

I'm checking to make sure you received my submission, Race. Ethnicity, and Fair Housing Enforcement: A Regional Analysis. The abstract is below:

This article systematically compares how federal, state, and local civil rights agencies in the ten standard regions of the United States enforce fair housing law complaints filed by African Americans and Latinos. Specifically, it explores the extent to which regional outcomes at all three levels of government are decided favorably where, between 1989 and 2010, a racial or ethnic violation of the Fair Housing Act of 1968 or the Fair Housing Amendments Act of 1988 is alleged. The results reveal significant variations in outcomes between these groups across the country. Most importantly, the probability of an outcome favorable to the complainant depends on the region in which the complaint is filed, the race or ethnicity of the complainant, and the racial or ethnic composition and the number of complaints filed per capita in the state in which a complaint originates. In general, while complaints filed by Latinos are more likely to receive a favorable outcome than those filed by African Americans, favorability rates for Latinos are more dependent on the region where the complaint is processed than they are for Blacks.


In case you didn't receive the manuscript, I'd be glad to send it again.
