Ségrégation sociale et périurbanisation


  • Jean Cavailhès
  • Harris Selod


La France compte 14 930 communes périurbaines qui couvrent le tiers du territoire, parmi lesquelles 90% sont des communes rurales. On associe souvent le mouvement de périurbanisation à la ségrégation sociale dans les villes. Nous en expliquons les raisons. Depuis deux décennies, le revenu moyen communal par foyer fiscal progresse dans les couronnes périurbaines proches des villes et il est en recul dans les villescentres, montrant un enrichissement relatif de ces proches couronnes. Cependant, les cadres ont des localisations plus centrales que les ouvriers, ces derniers étant surreprésentés dans les communes périurbaines éloignées. De plus, on observe une intensification de la ségrégation au sein des pôles urbains.
