Abstract:

Samara was selected for a PLACE study to gain more information about the populations at high-risk of acquiring and transmitting HIV. Samara oblast is among the top 10 oblasts in the Russia Federation with a high incidence of HIV infection. The city of Samara has higher rates than those of the oblast. Understanding who is at-risk of infection will aid in the development of prevention programs.

WORKING PAPERS:

University of Washington Center for Studies in Demography and Ecology: "The Effects Of Mixed-Race Households On Residential Segregation," by Mark Ellis, Steven Holloway, Richard Wright, and Margaret Hudson (WP 06-03, April 2006, .pdf format, 47p.).

Abstract:

In the last few decades, the number of mixed-race households has increased substantially, raising questions about their impact on measures of neighborhood segregation. Specifically, this paper asks two questions: What is the sensitivity of neighborhood racial segregation measures to levels of household scale racial mixing? And what is the relationship between neighborhood racial diversity and the presence of mixed-race households? We answer these questions using confidential long form data from the 1990 US census, which provides information on household racial composition at the tract scale. The results show that racial mixing within households has meaningful effects on measurements of neighborhood segregation. Additionally, we find that mixed-race households have the greatest proportional share of neighborhood diversity in the least racially diverse neighborhoods. The conclusions offer some thoughts as to the role mixed-race households may play in future neighborhood desegregation. They also argue that better understandings of mixed-race household formation and residential location are essential for comprehending neighborhood segregation dynamics more fully.
