Abstract

Using an alternative conception of ethnic residential segregation, and associated statistical measures, this paper re-examines Simpson's analysis of the situation of South Asians in Bradford. It suggests that, contra Simpson, segregation of that ethnic group did increase over the period 1991-2001, with implications for public policy.
