Abstract: While studies on residential concentrations of immigrants from non-industrial countries are now common, studies of
residential concentrations of immigrants from industrial countries are less common and comparative studies are almost nonexistent.
This paper will apply identical research methods to both types of immigrants. By making a detailed comparison of
the geography of seven ethnic groups in Amsterdam between 1994 and 2001, it is shown that immigrants from non-industrial countries are not extremely segregated, while immigrants from industrial countries show higher levels of concentration.
Residential concentration levels do not necessarily tell us anything about the level of economic success and social/civil integration, because the different spheres of integration do not run parallel. However, concentrations of immigrants from nonindustrial countries often intersect with low levels of neighbourhood satisfaction, and concentrations of immigrants from industrial countries with high levels of neighbourhood satisfaction.
