An article on “Neighborhood Violence, Poverty, and Psychological Well-being,” co-authored by Assistant Professor of Economics Mo Alloush, was recently published in the Journal of Development Economics.

Written with Jeffrey Bloem of the U.S. Department of Agriculture Economic Research Service, the paper presents the results of a study showing that exposure to neighborhood violence has significant effects on the psychological well-being of people in South Africa and this link is especially strong in urban neighborhoods.

The authors also found that the poor in South Africa are disproportionately affected by this, and that they are much more likely to live in neighborhoods with more objectively and subjectively measured violence.
