[eng] The Geography of Unemployment of First and Second-generation Africans in France: 2) Why such a Low Residential Mobility ? We use the French Housing Survey and analyze the residential mobility of people of African origins. We show that African people are overrepresented in large cities with respect to the rest of the population. We highlight two key factors behind this statement: the geographic concentration of social housing in dense areas and ethnic discrimination in the housing market. The interplay between these factors originates an African bias towards social housing: African people are more likely to enter social housing, and less likely to exit. These results are robust to controls for individual characteristics. [fre] Géographie du chômage des personnes d'origine africaine : 2) Pourquoi une si faible mobilité résidentielle ? Nous montrons à l'aide de l'enquête nationale Logement de l'Insee que les personnes d'origine africaine tendent à se fixer dans les grandes agglomérations dans des proportions beaucoup plus importantes que les personnes d'origine française. Deux raisons expliquent ce phénomène : la concentration du logement social dans les grandes villes et des phénomènes de discrimination à l'œuvre sur le marché du logement que nous mettons en évidence, tant sur le marché de la location que sur le marché de l'accession. Ces deux raisons permettent également d'expliquer, en dehors de toute préférence particulière, une sorte de tropisme des Africains vers le logement social : ils sont plus enclins à y entrer et beaucoup moins enclins à en sortir. Ces constats apparaissent robustes au contrôle des caractéristiques individuelles. ché de l'accession.
