residential segregation with respect to all other persons but a notable degree of segregation from its foreign-born segment.
Let us summarize what we have learned from the three panels of this Table 5.19. First, disregarding native and foreign-born segments, we see considerable residential segregation of each ethnic group in Los Angeles County from all other ethnic groups. Second, within each ethnic group the foreign-born segment is highly segregated not only from the remainder of the population but also from its own native-born segment. Finally, the native-born segment of each ethnic group is in general substantially segregated from all other persons.
