Segregation in Chicago: The Big Picture
In the index of dissimilarity, any value equal to or greater than 60 is considered very segregated, while 40 or 50 is considered a moderate amount of segregation. Thirty and below is considered low.
More integration for Asians and Latinos
Non-black Chicagoans are much less segregated from one another, but they still experience moderate to high levels of segregation. Asians and whites, the two most integrated groups, have seen the biggest decrease in segregation — from 51.4 to 40.8.
Still segregated for blacks
Blacks, still the most segregated group by far, have seen slight declines when it comes to segregation from whites, Latinos and Asians since 1990.
