Chris Tilly, associate professor in the department of policy and planning at the University of Massachusetts at Lowell, supervised the completion and data processing of the in-depth employer interviews that form part of the Multi-City Study of Urban Inequality. With colleagues Joleen Kirchenman and Philip Moss, he wrote a paper assessing the impact of the formality of the hiring process on minority representation in a firm's work force. Another paper analyzes employers' views of their space requirements in relation to location and hiring decisions.
