Segregation Results from 2010 

Segregation Results from Census 2010

Following the release of redistricting data from the 2010 Census, we at SSDAN calculated scores for several different measures of residential racial segregation and posted some of these on a website at the University of Michigan's Population Studies Center.  The interest in these measures was substantial and resulted in considerable attention to one article in particular.  Dan Denvir of Salon.com wrote a piece titled "The 10 Most Segregated Urban Areas in America," which aimed to give some historical context behind the metropolitan areas with the highest dissimilarity scores.  The article included a slideshow with maps SSDAN created showing the racial composition of individual neighborhoods within each of the 10 most segregated metro areas.
