This brief reviews data from the 2000 Census for the central cities of the nation's 100 largest metropolitan areas to determine what kinds of neighborhoods grew and declined in the 1990s and how those results compared with patterns of change in the 1980s. Particular attention is paid to poverty levels and race as factors in neighborhood population change.
