Rich Americans and poor Americans are increasingly segregating themselves into separate neighborhoods, as the gap between America's haves and have-nots widens, a Pew study of recent census data reveals.
From 1980 to 2010, the number of high-income households located in affluent neighborhoods doubled to 18%, the Washington Post reports, while the number of low-income households located in poor areas rose from 23% to 28%. Mixed or middle-class neighborhoods are still the most common, but their ranks are diminishing.
