Neighborhood Race Mixing and Employment Outcomes
This study examines the relationship between neighborhood racial composition and employment rates for minority groups. Employment rates for all minority subgroups (except black women) are highest when they live in neighborhoods that are predominately white (>90% white). Black women's employment rates are no different when they live in predominately white neighborhoods than when they live in majority minority neighborhoods (10-50% white). Black women are only worse off living in predominately minority (>90% minority) neighborhoods. I present possible explanations behind minority employment success when living in predominately white areas, as well as why black women may not benefit as much from living in such neighborhoods.
