    This study examines the impact of residential segregation on the welfare of populations in US metropolitan areas using economic growth as the indicator. Panel data of US metropolitan areas spanning 25 years, –, are used to analyse the effect of segregation on economic growth. Spatial mismatch is the mismatch between where low-income households reside and suitable job opportunities. In its original formulation (see below) and in subsequent research, it has mostly been understood as a phenomenon affecting African-Americans, as a result of residential segregation, economic restructuring, and the suburbanization of employment.

    Work on this phenomenon, termed spatial mismatch, suggests that residential segregation from whites shapes labour market outcomes among blacks by restricting access to job-dense suburbs.   Introduction. Residential segregation refers generally to the spatial separation of two or more social groups within a specified geographic area, such as a municipality, a county, or a metropolitan area. Most commonly, scholarship on residential segregation explores the extent to which groups defined by racial, ethnic, or national origin live in different neighborhoods; however, .

      Cutler and Glaeser () show that urban residential segregation has a strong adverse effect on labor market and social outcomes of young African-Americans relative to whites. We show that this effect is a fairly recent historical phenomenon. There is little evidence of such an effect from to ; rather, it emerged between and , and it grew stronger during the s. districts. Thereafter, however, segregation was achieved by less formal means (see Massey and Denton, ). Whatever the mechanism, the end result was a rapid increase in Black residential segregation, with the neighborhood segregation index rising from 56 to 78 between and , a remarkable increase of 39 percent in just three decades.
