Tennessee has an eviction rate of 2.78 percent and ranks 20 out of 46 recorded states, with about 53 evictions a day, according to the Eviction Lab at Princeton University.
The state’s three largest cities are in the top 0.31 percent for evictions, with Memphis ranked 41, Nashville ranked 87 and Knoxville ranked 107 out of 35,000 recognized towns and cities.
Eviction: Stories from Tennessee is a collaborative multimedia project from undergraduate Journalism and Electronic Media students at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. This project offers stories and resources for individuals and organizations touched by the issue of housing.
Inspired by The Eviction Lab launched by Matthew Desmond, Eviction: Stories from Tennessee uses data-driven storytelling to report on statistical and personal accounts of eviction across the state.
