This chapter attempts to review the empirical literature covering various aspects of segregation: residential segregation by race or income, occupational segregation by gender and race, and ethnic group and school segregation. Given the huge number of studies covering these different facets of segregation, this chapter presents a more detailed survey of school than of occupational or residential segregation, and its main focus is on the United States, although findings concerning occupational or residential segregation in other parts of the world are also mentioned. Special attention is given to two topics: the difficulty of evaluating the impact of school desegregation policies, and the specificity of residential segregation measurement which requires the use of spatial indices.
