Definition: Absolute Centralization captures the extent to which minorities live at the center of the metropolitan area (high positive numbers up to one) versus the outlying areas (negative numbers, to -1). A value of zero indicates that the minority group is evenly distributed in the metro area.

Notes: Racial groups refer to people who indicated they were of specified race "alone."  Excludes those specifying two or more races.  Indices in metro areas with small numbers of specified racial/ethnic groups should be used with caution.
