Saw this article in today's LA Times, which spoke about integrated and segregated neighborhoods in big cities: L.A. is resegregating -- and whites are a major reason why - LA Times

What intrigued me was this paragraph:

"... Segregation is not, however, inevitable. Our statistical model found that in 20% of L.A. neighborhoods we examined, whites, blacks, Latinos and Asians have been living together for 10 to 30 years, and no group's population is changing much faster or slower than any other. In fact, among L.A., Houston, Chicago and New York, Los Angeles had the highest proportion of these “quadrivial” neighborhoods..."


To me, that's an impressive (and I hope peaceful) coexistence, certainly when compared with my NYC experience. So where are these little racial nirvanas in LA? What are the actual neighborhoods? The article didn't name them and I thought Angelenos could tell me what areas the researchers might have had in mind.

Hype? Statistics are hype now? You NYC trolls are pretty sad.

Take a look at the LA Times Diversity Ranking map, I think that's probably where they drew much of their data from. It uses census figures to determine the probability that two residents drawn at random will be of a different ethnicity. It also lists percentages of different ethnic groups in each area and presumably they made comparisons between census years to determine degree of change in each population. Covers around 270 areas of the city.

Mid-Wilshire is first, top 10 includes Carson, Gardena, Long Beach, Downtown, Playa Vista. Long Beach and Pasadena are fairly high too.

Can't really rely on LA Times. Much of the information on the neighborhoods are outdated.
