Head shot of Robert Adelman, University at Buffalo immigration and U.S. Census expert.

Robert Adelman is an urban sociologist who studies social stratification in the United States.

Adelman analyzes patterns and processes related to residential segregation and neighborhood inequality, immigration, internal migration, and labor force differences by race, ethnicity and nativity.

His research on immigration across U.S. metropolitan areas provides evidence that immigration does not cause crime to increase, and may in fact help to reduce it.

Adelman can speak to the media about these and other urban issues, and about questions asked on the U.S. Census.
