Segregation among six out of 10 ethnic group pairings decreased between 2010 and 2020. The numbers shown are the rate of change. For example, the share of the white or Black population that would need to switch neighborhoods to balance the population increased by 0.7% in the city since 2010, but declined by 17% in the suburbs over the same period.

This analysis is based on the “dissimilarity index,” which represents the proportion of one group that would need to move to establish an equal distribution of the population based on their relative numbers.
