John Logan is an urban sociologist. He is collaborating with several Brazilian scholars to create mapped data for small neighborhoods in Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo, establishing constant boundaries for 2000 and 2010. These data will be used to analyze trends in neighborhood change and patterns of spatial inequality.
