HIGHLIGHTS: The most recent reports show that the majority of jobs and job growth continue to exist outside traditional downtown venues and that employment surges and declines – known as business churning – positively impact some areas and negatively affect others.

BACKGROUND:  MFI quarterly reports present cutting-edge research on different aspects of Southern California and consequences for neighborhoods in the region. They focus on issues of interest to the public as well as policymakers.
