10 Most Segregated Metro Cities in the United States

Post By RelatedRelated Post

The U.S. metropolitan areas with the lowest black-white residential segregation levels were located in the fast-growing South and West, according to analysis of 2010 U.S. Census results by the Population Reference Bureau (PRB).

The most segregated metro areas were mainly concentrated in the slow-growing Northeast and Midwest. The report examined only metro areas with a total population of 500,000 or more and at least 3,000 African-American residents.

The 10 least-segregated metro areas all grew faster than the national average of 11 percent between 2000 and 2010, with seven increasing 20 percent or more. Only one of the 10 most-segregated metros grew at even half the national average.

Least-segregated Raleigh and Las Vegas were among the nation’s fastest growing metros with growth of more than 40 percent, while most-segregated Detroit, Cleveland, and Buffalo lost population.
