Abstract

RESEARCH COMMUNICATIONS Note: The International Journal of Comparative Studies invites communications in the form of short articles and reports about ongoing research, not exceeding 5,000 words, both in the empirical and theoretical fields. EDITOR 1. The Residential Segregation of Blacks in Detroit, 1960-1970 JOE T. DARDEN Michigan State University, East Lansing, U.S.A. Recent studies on racial residential segregation have indicated that segre- gation declined during the decade of 1960 to 1970 (Poston and Passel 1972; Darden 1974a). However, such studies also indicate that racial residential segregation remains at a very high level. Until the causes of such high level of residential segregation are understood, no significant progress toward reducing it can be made. The objectives of this study are (1) to determine the magnitude of racial residential segregation in Detroit (central city, suburbs and SMSA) in 1960; (2) to determine the changes that occurred from 1960 to 1970; and (3) to determine how much of the segregation could be explained by housing cost inequality between blacks and whites.
