How do restrictive zoning and parental choices impact social diversity in schools?: A methodological contribution to the decomposition of segregation indices applied to France

Abstract : This paper provides a new method for decomposing segregation indices depending on two distinct set of unities. This method is applied to analyse how restrictive zoning and parental school choices impact social diversity in French middle schools. Using an exhaustive geolocalized dataset on three urban areas, segregation indices at the school level are decomposed into contributions of residential segregation and of circumvention. According to the results, for the three analysed urban areas, school choice accounts for one half of the social segregation across middle schools in Paris, and more than one third in the urban areas of Bordeaux and Clermond-Ferrand. This mostly stems from the fact that the social mix in "left behind" public schools is reduced as the parents who opt out of their neighborhood school for a private one are often the most advantaged ones locally.
