Our second goal is to discuss in some detail hypotheses which link structural characteristics of communities to racial inequality. In so doing, we develop theoretical rationales for the various predictor variables we include in the models of inequality we report in Chapters 5 and 6. In addition, we also discuss selected theoretical concerns which are relevant to understanding racial inequality in nonmetropolitan areas but which for various reasons cannot be directly reflected in our modeling efforts.


Previous Research

Comparative analyses of racial inequality have always focused primarily on metropolitan areas and this has been especially true in recent decades. However, nonmetropolitan areas have not been totally neglected and thus a brief and selective review of prior studies is warranted. Two studies by Blalock ( 1957; 1959) were among the first ecological studies to investigate racial inequality in nonmetropolitan areas. 1 In the first of these studies Blalock investigated the impact of relative minority size and the rate of increase in the minority population on racial inequality. 2 He reported strong positive corU+0AD
