Abstract

To shed light upon the forces driving Residential Segregation based on income is the aim of the present research. Using a rich micro-database from Santiago of Chile, a transparent methodology has been implemented for understanding the Santiago segregation pattern and the contributions of a set of individuals characteristics in driving it. The analysis has been applied to the years 1992, 1994,1996,1998, 2000, 2003 and 2006, as a way to investigate the Residential Segregation changes over the time. The main results are that an important amount of Residential Segregation is explaining by individuals households characteristics, and that the Chilean housing policy has been an important determinant of Residential Segregation
