- 1. + Optimal models of segregation Richard Harris
- 2. + Classic segregation index I = k obsi −expii∑ D = 0.5 ai aii ∑ − bi bii ∑i∑
- 3. + Classic segregation index n Literally the sum of its parts n And those parts are places (locations within the overall study region) n Which means they can be georeferenced i (xi, yi)
- 4. + Classic segregation index n The georeference is superfluous n Only need to know that i is within the study region n Really just the average difference between two variables n Hence…
- 5. + Classic segregation index n … all these have the same index value (D = 1) n “the checkerboard problem”
- 6. + Same lived experience of residential segregation?
- 7. + Five dimensions of residential segregation (Massey & Denton, 1988) n (Un-)Evenness n which is what the classic segregation index measures n Exposure n Probabilistic measures n Concentration n Centralization n Clustering n Concerns the “checkerboard problem”
- 8. + Clustering n Jakubs (1981) and Morgan (1983) propose distance-based measures based on linear optimization. n Recall, for example, n For each location (i) determining whether obs > exp or obs < exp and therefore whether it has a surplus or deficit of the target population. I = k obsi −expii∑
- 9. + The optimization n Minimise the distance the target population would have to travel between (between the georeferences, i.e. centroids) to achieve an even distribution. n Both Jakubs and Morgan then calculate Dmin / D* where d* is the minimum distance under some hypothetical condition of maximum segregation.
- 10. + A problem n “After some initial experimentation … we quickly discovered that computing costs and machine requirements quickly became prohibitive for large urban areas” n Massey and Denton (1988, p.296) n But that was then… n … well before the R optimization package lpSolve became available (for free)
- 11. + Some tweaks n I am not convinced by the need to construct a ratio (i.e. Dmin / D*) n Instead, use Dmin / Σa – the average distance a person in group a would have to travel to create evenness (with group b) n Dmin is a function of the distances between zone centroids.Try: n Use nth nearest neighbour instead of Euclidean distance and minimise that instead n (Dmin / Σa) / meandc where meandc is the mean inter-centroid distance
- 12. + Some Pearson correlations D Dsp (nn) Dsp (Euc) N D 0.415 0.763 0.210 Dsp (nn) 0.356 0.788 Dsp (Euc) -0.045 D is the standard index of dissimilarity (Asian Vs White British for the 75 authorities with greater than 5% population Asian*) Dsp (nn) is the Spatial Dissimilarity index using nearest neighbour distance. Dsp uses Euclidean distances (but divides by mean inter- centroid distances) N is the number of Output Areas in the authority * Asian here defined as Pakistani + Indian + Bangladeshi (largest groups)
- 13. + Blackburn with Darwen
- 14. + However… n This is not actually a measure of clustering n It conflates clustering and centralisation n Pearson correlation (Dsp, Distance between the mean centre for the entire population per local authority and the mean centre for the Asian population): 0.529
- 15. + Three choices n Decide what actually it is n Geographic measure of the residential separation of the White British from the Asian population with the local authorities n So, if you believe distance effects contact, it is a measure of exposure n Create a ratio against some hypothetical notion of ‘total segregation’ for the given geography n Control for the centralisation effects (e.g. using regression) …

- 18. + Closing Thoughts n There is no longer a technological barrier for treating the measurement of segregation as a (spatial) optimization problem. n But it is not a measure of clustering per se n It still takes a while to calculate n And the ‘most segregated’ [sic] authority based on the principal component loadings?
- 19. + Newham n It is because 36% of Newham’s residential population is Asian and it also lost 37% of its White British population from 2001 – 2011 n The next is Redbridge (33% Asian; lost 30%) n Then Blackburn (unevenly distributed and spatially clustered Asian population) Prop. Asian 0.05 to <0.15 0.15 to <0.30 0.30 to <0.60 0.60 to 0.81 Omitted
