The influence that a community possesses can either bolster socioeconomic status or inhibit it. The purpose of the project was to analyze and discuss the varying ways in which neighborhoods can affect its inhabitants (i.e. education, health/nutrition), the experiments aimed to help modest families, and offer a possible solution to mitigate these issues. It has been cited in over 30 academic journals since its publication.
