Géographie du chômage des personnes d’origine africaine : pourquoi une si faible mobilité résidentielle ?

Listed author(s):

Nous montrons à l’aide de l’enquête Logement que les personnes d’origine africaine sont surreprésentées dans les grandes agglomérations et tendent à s’y fixer 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 d’expliquer, en dehors de toute préférence particulière, une sorte de « tropisme » des Africains vers le logement social : ils sont plus enclins à en sortir. Ces constats apparaissent robustes au contrôle des caractéristiques individuelles.
