The Measurement of Spatial Segregation.
White, Michael J.
American Journal of Sociology, v88 n5 p1008-18 Mar 1983
In answer to criticism of the dissimilarity index in measuring the amount of segregation (occupational and racial) in communities, the author has developed an index which reflects differences between cities possessing concentrated ghettos and those with multiple residential clusters. The proximity measure incorporates spatial qualities directly into the calculations. (KC)
