This session contains four papers using four papers to study the causes and consequences of residential segregation.  The first two papers study the processes leading to neighborhood sorting.  The paper by Dionissi Aliprantis studies how the combination of income, race, and wealth lead to segregation, and the paper by Marcus Casey studies segregation from a dynamic perspective.  The last two papers study the effects of redlining.  The paper by Jacob Faber studies how HOLC/redlining maps and the lending practices they supported have led to current-day segregation, and the paper by Bhash Mazumder studies the long-run impacts of the HOLC maps on children's outcomes.
