ResumenEthnic minorities' spatial concentration and their predominance in deprived areas are two well-known patterns that characterize Britain's social landscape. However, little is known about ethnic minorities' opportunities for spatial integration, especially those of the second generations. Using a large-scale longitudinal dataset of England and Wales covering a forty-year period (1971-2011), in combination with aggregated Census data, the article examines ethnic inequalities in access to neighbourhoods with varying levels of ethnic concentration and deprivation. On equality of individual, social origin and childhood neighbourhood characteristics, second generation ethnic minorities are less likely than white British individuals to reside in whiter and less deprived neighbourhoods. For most minorities, these differences reduce among those with higher education and a higher social class, in line with weak place stratification/ethnic enclave. Growing up in areas with high ethnic concentration and high deprivation has a particularly strong retention effect among second generation Asians.
