As scholars observe, the pronounced effects of urban inequality are in the persistence of residential segregation and in neighborhood income polarization. On the one hand, gated communities constitute some of the most privileged and affluent communities, and as such contribute to segregation. On the other hand, mixed-income communities are increasingly being promoted through a multitude of housing policies as a pathway towards desegregation. The empirical evidence, however, is not conclusive about whether or not this mixedness indeed contributes to residential integration. Particularly, there are no studies about the specific impact of economically integrated neighborhoods on levels of metropolitan residential segregation. The innovative aspect of the proposed research is that it provides such evidence by examining the link between mixed-income neighborhoods and gated communities.
