From the Paper:

"Sociologists and policymakers have long viewed racial residential segregation as a key aspect of racial inequality, implicated in both intergroup relations and in larger processes of individual and group social mobility" (Charles, 2003, p. 167). Charles' (2003) research indicates that where a person lives affects their proximity to good employment opportunities, quality education and safety from crime. The product of where one lives will be seen in the quality of education and employment via their socioeconomic status."
