Separate and Not Equal

According to a recent report from the Pew Research Center, in the past 30 years, Americans are increasingly living neighborhoods with people of similar economic status. For example, 28 percent of lower-income households in 2010 were found in neighborhoods where at least half the residents were also lower income and 18 percent of upper-income households were located in neighborhoods of the same income bracket.
