The economics of housing segregation, Issue 5510
The study explains the residential segregation of non-whites in the urban United States. It employs various quantitative techniques in the partitioning of observed segregation into the components attributable to prejudice on the one hand, and the socio-economic differences between whites and non-whites on the other. Interpretations of the interaction between prejudice and socio-economic differences are also sketched.
