Can the Queens Library System decide where to locate the next library based on demographic and locational factors?
A multi-criteria decision analysis was done to find possible locations for new libraries in the Queens Public Library system using several weighted factors. These included distance from other libraries, English proficiency, age, origin and level of education. The factors were combined with the vacant lots in Queens to generate possible lots for new library sites. From this, three possible locations which were highly suitable for a Queens Public Library were generated.
