Partisan Segregation Project

Jacob Brown and Ryan Enos


Using L2 data, we have used the location of every individual voter to calculate segregation for metropolitan areas and Congressional Districts in the United States.  See links to tables and figures in the left and right columns.  

The working paper from this project is here.


These links list segregation as calculated by the Dissimilarity Index with Census Tracts as the base unit.  As a point of reference, the Dissimilarity Index for whites and African Americans in the Chicago metropolitan area in 2015 is 0.73.
