Abstract

Chile’s economic development in recent decades has greatly impacted cities’ development and the way social inequalities are spatially reproduced in them. Therefore, an accurate measurement of urban segregation is relevant and allows designing public policies to reduce their negative effects. However, previous measurements in Chile have methodological limitations that restrict their validity and comparability. The new methodology used combines survey data with census data to estimate household income and then statistically robust indicators of residential segregation. Additionally, it develops valuation for an indicator of segregation that best captures income as a continuous variable. The findings show that segregation of the poor is greater than that of the richest and that increased between 1992 and 2002. Municipality’s contribution to Santiago’s segregation has a significant heterogeneity.
