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