Example text

We were able to control for a range of individual characteristics, such as the level of education, country of origin, household type, urban-rural difference, etc. In a follow-up the Swedish dataset was used to investigate which neighborhood characteristics in terms of social mix had the most effect on individual socio-economic opportunities in terms of (average) annual income from work (Andersson et al. 2007, Musterd et al. 2008) and whether residents were equally or differentially affected by their residential environment (Galster et al.

2002; Small & Newman 2001). A number of mechanisms are distinguished, some of which lie outside the neighborhood (described as correlated neighborhood effect mechanisms) and some of which are located within the neighborhood (described as endogenous neighborhood effect mechanisms). Correlated mechanisms include external stigmatization by employers, a spatial mismatch between neighborhood location and employment opportunities and inferior local public services such as schools and public transportation as a result of political arrangements at a higher scale.

2007). Although ethnocentrism was measured in an economic sense – the distribution of scarce resources between immigrants and natives – the finding that the lower educated are more ethnocentric in this sense might therefore stem from their lack of cultural capital instead of their weak economic position. If so, it is their cultural conservatism and not their economic interest that drives this ethnocentrism. The second explanation – not necessarily excluding the first – as to why there is less ethnocentrism in service-oriented urban economies may be more directly related to a higher share of non-Western migrants employed in the service industries.
