About the Seminar

As of 2020, the U.S. multiracial population is the fastest growing racial group. While the number of multiracial individuals has risen and is predicted to comprise a sizable share of the U.S. population in coming decades, our understanding is limited regarding how they operate in broader systems of racial residential stratification. Using data from 2005 to 2021 from the Home Mortgage Disclosure Act linked to the U.S. Census, I assess the neighborhood attainment patterns of a broad group of multiracial individuals. The insights derived from this study have implications for our understanding of the persistence—and perhaps transformation—of the modern color line that has been reified by the spatial distribution of racial groups within metropolitan areas, and how we conceive of traditional theories used to explain racial residential stratification in an era marked by increasing diversity.
