How we investigated evictions and code complaints in the Las Vegas Valley

As part of an investigative series on evictions in Nevada, the Las Vegas Review-Journal sought to evaluate eviction and code complaint rates among rental companies as of August 2019 focusing on companies that owned more than 100 single-family homes in the Las Vegas Valley and had bought most of their housing stock during and after the 2008 financial crisis. To analyze the data, the newspaper partnered with Bloustein School assistant professor Eric Seymour, who parsed more than 26,000 pages of records and created a map showing the general location of each eviction.
