This study will investigate the relationships between declining occupancy rates at Century III Mall, located in West Mifflin, Pa, and the socioeconomic status of the communities that service the mall. The service area of the mall will be determined through various trade area analysis techniques. A statistical analysis of the neighborhoods that make up the malls service area will indicate which socioeconomic elements are probable predictors of the mall’s decline.
