 Housing Patterns


Data in Excel or Text format


Residential Housing Pattern indexes can be obtained for metropolitan areas (as defined on Jine 30, 1999 and June 6, 2003), micropolitan areas, and places for various years and racial/ethnic groups. View the data by creating tables, or downloading files in Excel or Text format.

The 1980 and 1990 metropolitan area segregation indexes were recalculated in 2002 to reflect MSA boundaries in effect during Census 2000 and therefore may not be the same as previously released. While every effort has been made to check these new calculations, they are complex and may need to be revised in the future.
