This chapter aims to provide context for the book and the contribution of each chapter. It introduces key recent developments in the definition, conceptualisation and measurement of segregation; it surveys recent developments in the analysis of segregation with an emphasis on spatial scale and new methods. Data sources (including the 2010 US and 2011 UK Censuses) are discussed to illustrate the immediate potential for analysis during the next decade but the chapter looks further ahead to consider the prospects for segregation analysis in the light of proposed changes in the conduct of the UK and US Censuses and the possible provision of population data through alternative routes. The themes that have been signposted in the chapter are developed later in the book.
