This article suggests ways to better design, conduct, and interpret evaluations of the effects of housing mobility programs on participants, with emphasis on how to isolate neighborhood effects. It reviews earlier critiques of neighborhood effects research and discusses the key assumptions of housing mobility programs — about the benefits of affluent neighbors, the spatial organization of opportunity for the urban poor, and the meanings of neighborhood to residents, researchers, and policy makers.
