One in five Baltimore-area residents experiences food insecurity, more than a quarter have lost someone to drug overdose, and most residents trust organizations and businesses more than local government, a new survey from Johns Hopkins University’s 21st Century Cities Initiative shows.
“Johns Hopkins has research aimed all over the world, and it’s just as important to focus on Baltimore,” said lead author Michael Bader, an associate professor of sociology at Johns Hopkins and faculty director of the 21st Century Cities Initiative, which brings together researchers from across Johns Hopkins to study urban issues. “Our hope is that this survey will help all of us better understand our home.”
