In order to accurately map vacancy in Cincinnati, three sources of information were referenced: vacant land use, vacant buildings slated for demolition, and buildings ordered vacant by the city. Neighborhood vacancy was mapped by calculating the percentage of vacant parcels in each neighborhood.
Neighborhood vacancy typologies were assigned four categories: STABLE, AT RISK, THREATENED, and HAZARDOUS. It should be noted that no focus neighborhoods fell under the stable category. The neighborhoods of Avondale and West Price Hill fall under AT RISK areas. East Price Hill, South Cumminsville, and Mt. Auburn are listed as THREATENED areas. North Fairmount fell under HAZARDOUS areas.
