Immigration and Metropolitan Residential Segregation (ICPSR 34460) RSS

Principal Investigator(s):

Summary:

It is commonly thought that differences in residential patterns across social and ethnic groups reflect social divisions and distance. The goal of this project was to use restricted data from the 1990 and 2000 censuses to document patterns of residential segregation among native- and foreign-born people of various racial and ethnic groups, and examine the interplay between race and nativity in producing observed patterns. In doing so, the study aimed to shed light on the aptness of the spatial assimilation model in explaining residential patterns of groups composed of many immigrants, as opposed to models that stress the overarching role of race and racial conflict in determining where people live.
