DescriptionThis brief looks at trends in income segregation among families in urban neighborhoods during the last 40 years. It shows that as overall income inequality grew in the last four decades, high- and low-income families have become increasingly less likely to live near one another. Mixed income neighborhoods have grown rarer, while affluent and poor neighborhoods have grown much more common.
