Cover Story (view full-size image): Neighborhood environments have been identified as important sources of both stress and protection for individuals. This study examines the role of changes in neighborhood socioeconomic status (SES) and racial/ethnic composition on trajectories of depressive symptoms from ages 13–32 across racial/ethnic groups in the United States. Using a novel research design to identify patterns of person-centered trajectories, this study found that changes in racial/ethnic composition, but not in neighborhood SES, relate to depressive symptoms as youth emerge into adulthood. Further, findings suggest the neighborhood race/ethnic composition was protective or stressful based largely on where one falls in America’s racial/ethnic power hierarchy. View this paper
