Residential segregation and black-white intermarriage
I use 1980, 1990, and 2000 Census data to show that greater residential segregation is associated with a lower probability that black men, black women, white men, and white women are in black-white marriages. This negative relationship grows stronger among whites and remains constant among blacks when I control for local marriage market characteristics. Plausible explanations for the results are discussed and investigated.
