Minority status distortion and preference for in-group ties: Consequences for social capital

Abstract

To assess residents’ perceptions of social capital (social cohesion, place attachment, and neighboring), the authors
create innovative measures of residents’ assessments of neighborhood ethnic minorities and the extent of social
ties between members of the same ethnic group compared with chance. The authors use a sample of nearly 10,000
residents nested in 297 neighborhoods in two Australian cities. Residents who perceive more minorities in their neighborhood, who have more or fewer ties with members of the other ethnic group than expected by chance, or who
live in neighborhoods with more intergroup ties than would be expected report lower levels of social capital.
