Figure 2

Correlation of MSA black-white segregation indices. Histograms (on the diagonal) and correlations (plots below diagonal, Spearman rank correlation coefficients above the diagonal) of segregation indices for 231 US MSA's, 2000. P-values for all pair wise correlations are < 0.0001. (Diss-tract: census tract-derived dissimilarity index; Diss-500 m, Diss-4000 m: surface-density-derived dissimilarity index for MSA's with neighborhoods defined with a 500 m or 4000 m kernel density function; Iso-tract: census tract-derived isolation index; Iso-500 m, Iso-4000 m: surface-density-derived isolation index for MSA's with neighborhoods defined with a 500 m or 4000 m kernel density function)
