Living Together: A New Look at Racial and Ethnic Integration in Metropolitan Neighborhoods, by David Fasenfest, Jason Booza, and Kurt Metzger, published by the Brookings Institution, analyzes the changing racial and ethnic profile of neighborhoods in America’s 10 largest metropolitan areas between 1990 and 2000. The study reveals that nine of the 10 metro areas saw an increase in mixed-race neighborhoods and by 2000, about equal proportions of whites, blacks, and Hispanics (41-42%) lived in predominantly white, black, and other race communities, respectively. For more on how the emergence of more mixed-race communities calls out for examining how policy might foster racial and ethnic integration, and to download the full report, go to the Brookings Institution website.
