The Pew Research Center published a report this month that found an increase in residential segregation by income across the U.S. over the past three decades. Twenty-seven of the 30 largest major metropolitan areas in the county saw a rise in residential segregation. The report's overview links the increase n residential segregation to broader increases in income inequality and notes that segregation by income is still "less pervasive than residential segregation by race." Although it briefly notes the potential relevance of local housing policies, zoning laws, and real estate practices, the report does not explore in detail the causes of the differences found among metro areas.
In addition to the report, the Pew website has maps of residential income segregation in the ten largest U.S. metro areas.
