Work by Couper, Farley et al. shows impact of racial composition on neighborhood choice

a PSC In The News reference, 2016

"Affluent and Black, and Still Trapped by Segregation" - New York Times. 08/20/2016.

This piece explores the influence of race, rather than income, on neighborhood choice - and specifically the tendency for affluent black Americans to live in poor, segregated communities. Citing 2009 work by Maria Krysan, Mick Couper, Reynolds Farley and Tyrone Forman, the author says: "Nationally, black and white families of similar incomes still live in separate worlds."
