Revisiting Metropolitan Racial Inequality: The Case for a Resource Approach.
Grant, Don Sherman, II; Parcel, Toby L.
Social Forces, v68 n4 p1121-42 Jun 1990
A resource approach to economic segmentation more adequately explains racial income inequality in metropolitan areas, particularly for males, than do traditional models. The resource approach emphasizes job and production factors, such as firm size and unionization, as well as social organizational factors in local labor markets. Contains 48 references. (SV)
