Project Description

Residential segregation in five European countries A comparative study using individualized scalable neighbourhoods

Residential segregation, or the physical separation of groups into different neighbourhoods, may have negative effects, such as decreased chances on the labour market among minority groups. There is however no accepted standard for segregation measurement, mostly as the geographical areas concerned differ much in size and distribution. In the project an innovative measure of segregation is proposed, where neighbourhoods are defined based on individuals instead of being based on administrative borders. The new measures of socio-economic and ethnic segregation will be comparable across cities and countries, and can be used in order to combat segregation and its negative effects.
