The chapter argues that segregation analysis should focus on flows into neighbourhoods rather than on static indices. It uses unique administrative data to evaluate change through time. It shows that minority ethnic households are more likely to end up in deprived ethnic minority areas whether or not choice is exercised through choice-based letting. There is evidence of sorting between places that will lead, everything else being equal, to increased levels of segregation.
