Does London conform to the classic American model - based on the work of the 'Chicago School' - with regard to the residential segregation of ethnic groups? To address this question, methods of analysing census small area data on ethnic group residential segregation in London are introduced, which provide more detailed information on the degree and extent of segregation than the usually employed methods of mapping and calculating single indices. These indicate very little spatial segregation of ethnic minority groups in London compared with New York, which is used here to exemplify the 'American model'. In both cities, however, the White majority is very substantially separated from other ethnic groups.
