- This paper examines the degree of inter-class residential segregation in urban Korea by looking at the middle class concentration in Seoul during the period of 1975-1985. Discussion is focused on how the pattern of distribution of the middle class households changed during this period. Using the 2 percent sample of the Population and Housing Censuses, spatial distribution of the middle class is explored. Recognizing that sharp residential segregation by social class is a more recent phenomenon, this paper implies that segregation deepens the gap between housing classes and the gap in turn may facilitate the segregation of residence.
