Residential segregation and its effects on social inclusion are a main concern of contemporary urban policy. In this project, we propose an innovative measure of segregation that defines neighborhoods around individuals instead of basing it on administrative borders. The use of register data allows us to compare segregation indices for cities in the Netherlands, Belgium, Denmark, Sweden, and Norway.
This project is funded by JPI Urban Europe. In the project, NIDI collaborates with Stockholm University, the Vrije Universiteit Brussel, Statistics Denmark, and the University of Oslo. More information on the project is available at https://www.residentialsegregation.org/.
