Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



The paper provides empirical evidence about socio-spatial differentiation in Riga according to its ecological structure. AA.’ aim is to examine the characteristics of the inhabitants by distinctive types of urban neighbourhoods with particular interest on ethnicity. The analysis is based on a recent sample survey that was carried out in 2012 and 2013. The results reveal that characteristics of population subgroups differ among urban zones with regard to ethnic origin, age, household size and income. Less pronounced are differences by education, migration background and family type. The conclusion is that Riga is a relatively mixed city at the beginning of the 21st century. - (AM)
