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: Children defined as those under age 18. 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.
