The 2000 Census continues to offer dedicated scholars and researchers the ability to track and identify various spatial trends and patterns across the country, and this latest publication from the Census Series at the Brookings Institution is certainly no exception to the trend. Authored by David Fasenfest, Jason Booza, and Kurt Metzger, this 20-page report takes a close look at racial and ethnic integration in metropolitan neighborhoods in the nation's ten largest metropolitan areas. Comparing the data from the 1990 and the 2000 Census, the report contains a number of insightful findings. One finding of note demonstrates that the number of predominantly white neighborhoods fell by 30 percent during the 1990s and that nine of the 10 metro areas saw an increase in mixed-race neighborhoods. Complementing the text of the report are a number of helpful charts and maps that offer concrete visualizations of some of the crucial findings and spatial patterns that emerged during the 1990s.
