The True Cost of Discrimination

Researchers found that while blatant forms of discrimination, such as refusing to meet with a minority homeseeker, have declined since 1977 (the year of the first national study), "the forms of discrimination that persist (providing information about fewer units) raise the costs of housing search for minorities and restrict their housing options."
