Pittsburgh Neighborhood Atlas, 1977

This compilation includes five historical datasets that are part of the University of Pittsburgh Library collection. The datasets were transcribed from The Pittsburgh Neighborhood Atlas, published in 1977. The atlas was prepared by the Pittsburgh Neighborhood Alliance. The information provides an insight into the neighborhoods conditions and the direction in which they were moving at the time of preparation. Much of the material describing neighborhood characteristics came from figures compiled for smaller areas: voting districts or census blocks. The five datasets in this collection provide data about overall neighborhood satisfaction and satisfaction with public services, based on a city-wide citizen survey. Also included are statistics about public assistance, the crime rate and the changes in real estate and mortgage loans transactions.
