Abstract/Description: The costs of sprawl are well-documented, but there are fewer studies of its potential benefits. One such benefit is argued to be the facilitation of the filtering process, resulting in a greater quantity of affordable and available housing for low-income households. While metropolitan area data indicate a positive correlation between sprawl and the supply of affordable housing for poor households, regression analysis does not provide evidence for this hypothesis, after controlling for other metropolitan characteristics. The results put into question the argument that sprawl expands housing opportunities for households of all incomes, specifically those who are the poorest.
