Residential Ethnic Segregation and Housing Issues in Various Societies: The Case of Japan
National Institute of Population and Social Security Research
The papers presented here focus on housing problems faced by Hispanics in the United States, including homelessness and ethnic residential segregation. Policies to assist households to rent or acquire a house or use shelters in an emergency cannot necessarily mitigate the disadvantages those households face due to their limited English proficiency and migrant status. Those disadvantages include not only their current lower socioeconomic status but also future poverty through mechanisms such as school segregation. Ethnic residential segregation and other related housing problems are concerns in U.S. society, as has been revealed in the academic literature.
