Metro segregation patterns, then and now

Here’s an interesting tool put together by Graham MacDonald, a research associate in the Metropolitan Housing and Communities Center at the Urban Institute.

In my hometown, St. Louis, it looks as though the northwest corner of the metropolitan area became more integrated, but otherwise, not much has changed. What about your town?
