N2 - We study the first year of the eBOSS quasar sample in the redshift range 0.9Q = 2.45 ± 0.05 at bar_z=1.55, together with its evolution with redshift. We use this information to determine the minimum mass of the halo hosting the quasars and the characteristic halo mass, which we find to be both independent of redshift within statistical error. Using a recently-measured quasar-luminosity-function we also determine the quasar duty cycle. The size of this first year sample is insufficient to detect any luminosity dependence to quasar clustering and this issue should be further studied with the final ~500,000 eBOSS quasar sample.
