Map of the Day: Segregation by Income in America

Screen Shot 2012-08-08 at 8.03.47 PM

John Infranca, guest-blogging at Land Use Prof, highlights a series of maps of residential income segregation in the ten largest U.S. metro areas. 

John also notes that The Pew Research Center has concluded that residential segregation by income has increased across the U.S. over the last thirty years.  Twenty-seven of the 30 largest metro areas reported a jump in residential segregation.  The Center's report ties the increase in residential segregation to the broader problem of income inequality and affirms that segregation by income remains "less pervasive than residential segregation by race.""
