This research brief, the third in the "Neighborhood Change in Urban America" series, analyzes changes from 1990 to 2000 in the racial composition of 69 large metro areas nationwide. It explores increases in the number of racially integrated neighborhoods, as well as the extent to which these neighborhoods are stable or transitional. The analysis offers grounds for cautious optimism about the prospects for stable black-white integration in city and suburban neighborhoods.
