Immigrants’ Spatial Incorporation in France: Patterns in Neighborhood Attainment, Housing Tenure and Intergenerational Residential Mobility

This communication explores the residential outcomes of first and second generation immigrants in France. I draw on two large data sets, L’échantillon démographique permanent (INSEE) and Trajectoires et origines (INED/INSEE), which provide rare information about immigrants and their offspring, combine individual and contextual-level variables, and span several dates of observation (1990-2008). Drawing on classical theoretical approaches to immigrants’ spatial incorporation, the analysis seeks to document the effects of origin, immigrant generation and socioeconomic status on transitions within neighborhoods and housing as well as the extent to which residential situations are transmitted between parents and children. The findings demonstrate that immigrants’ residential outcomes are marked by ethnoracial and class inequalities which tend to be reproduced over time and across generations.
