A study by the Pew Research Center shows an increase in residential segregation. What does this mean?

The three cities that have seen the greatest segregation by income are Houston, Dallas and San Antonio. Taylor can’t say for certain what it is about Texas, but thinks the Sunbelt might have something to do with it. Retirees are attracted to the well-to-do neighborhoods, while workers from south of the border are attracted by the lower-end service jobs.
