A variety of forces have imposed residential segregation on African Americans in Cincinnati and Hamilton County since at least the beginning of the twentieth century, leaving a geographic racial divide that has only recently begun to be bridged modestly. 

This study explores racial integration within Hamilton County as a factor of the Dissimilarity Index (DI), a standard measure of integration, traced over time from 1980-2010.
