In much of the previous research on residential evaluation criteria, scholars have neglected to examine possible variations by household type, particularly among black households. In this research, the housing and neighborhood satisfaction of six black household types are reported. The specified model predicted neighborhood somewhat better than housing satisfaction and was more predictive for some household types than for others. Neither the housing and neighborhood satisfaction of couple-headed households nor women alone was particularly well defined. The results highlight the limited housing and neighborhood options of blacks, particularly female-headed families and the elderly, and suggest public policy intervention in urban settings on their behalf.
