Definition: Isolation is a segregation measure referring to the degree of potential contact, or the possibility of interaction, between people of the same racial group. For instance, the black isolation index provides the average proportion of neighbors that are black, for the average neighborhood where blacks live.

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.
