Residential segregation of immigrants in France: an over view
In France, residential segregation of immigrant populations from North Africa, sub-Saharan African, Turkey and Asia is high. Between 1990 and 1999, the segregation of Turks, Algerians and Moroccans increased, while for Tunisians it remained stable and for sub-Saharan Africans it decreased. Viewed over a longer timescale (1968-1999), segregation has decreased for all immigrant populations. As shown by the Trajectories and Origins survey (TeO) conducted by INED in 2008, 42% of immigrants from Sub- Saharan Africa, North Africa and Turkey live in the 10% of neighbourhoods where unemployment is highest, and they represent 28% of the population of disadvantaged neighbourhoods. The second generations are less concentrated in these neighbourhoods, however, indicating that residential integration increases from one generation to the next.
