This study examines the impact of residential segregation on the welfare of populations in US metropolitan areas using economic growth as the indicator. The results show that both racial and skill segregation have a negative impact on shortand long-term economic growth, which have increased over time. Further, the negative impact of the variables associated with spatial mismatch is also revealed. The results point to the need for mobility policies that favour non-White households and comprehensive strategies that promote economic opportunities in low resource communities in the US
