Residential segregation non-white/white (County Health Rankings)
Racial/ethnic residential segregation refers to the degree to which two or more groups live separately from one another in a geographic area. The index of dissimilarity is a demographic measure of the evenness with which two groups (non-white and white residents) are distributed across the component geographic areas (census tracts, in this case) that make up a larger area (counties, in this case). The index score can be interpreted as the percentage of white or non-white that would have to move to different geographic areas in order to produce a distribution that matches that of the larger area.
Measurement Period: 2012-2016
