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. 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.
