Handbook of Urban Segregation

Edited by Sako Musterd

The Handbook of Urban Segregation scrutinises key debates on spatial inequality in cities across the globe. It engages with multiple domains, including residential places, public spaces and the field of education. In addition it tackles crucial group-dimensions across race, class and culture as well as age groups, the urban rich, middle class, and gentrified households. This timely Handbook provides a key contribution to understanding what urban segregation is about, why it has developed, what its consequences are and how it is measured, conceptualised and framed.

Chapter 13: Change and persistence in the third dimension: residential segregation by age and family type in Stockholm, 1990 and 2014

Åsa Bråmå and Roger Andersson


Beside the more well-known forms of residential segregation, socioeconomic and ethnic/racial, there is a third form that has to do with spatial differentiation in terms of demographic traits such as household or family type and age. In this chapter, we describe the residential patterns of different demographic groups in Stockholm, Sweden, in 1990 and 2014, and discuss how changes in these patterns can be explained, given theory and earlier research within the field. We find that a general decline in levels of demographic segregation has happened during the period, and we suggest that the low building rates after the early 1990s is one important factor behind the decline.
