Spatial segregation is differentiation of location choice of population groups which differ from each other in terms of economic and social characteristics. Typical examples of spatial segregation are high-income groups located in places isolated from the rest of the society or those who migrated to the city as unskilled and dispossessed, low-income groups settled certain areas and slums. The separation of residential areas in urban space due to the differences in terms of socioeconomic indicators, lifestyle/standard etc. reduce the communication between income groups and create a non-integrated urban structure. In this study, we will focus on factors affecting spatial segregation giving special attention on Turkey.
