Abstract [en]

This study aims to examine the extent of residential segregation in Umeå by describing differences in socioeconomic structure between urban districts. Furthermore, the study also aims to analyse how Umeå municipality is considering residential segregation in their plans for urban development and how this can affect the extent of the segregation. In order to present the socioeconomic differences between the urban districts in Umeå statistics showing income, education and employment was used. Information about the municipal priorities regarding the development of the urban environment was gathered by reading and analysing municipal documents that is used to guide physical planning in the city. The results of the study show that there are differences in the socioeconomic structure of Umeås urban districts. These differences show that residential segregation is an occurring phenomenon in Umeå since residents with different characteristics are living separated from each other. Results gathered by studying and analysing the municipal documents show that Umeå municipality prioritises sustainable growth and want to condensate the city in order to achieve a mixed supply of housing in attractive locations with different sizes, prices, and forms of tenure. Thus, the results imply that Umeå municipality has a good chance of reducing the residential segregation of the urban districts in the future.
