composition

Standard deviation in parentheses. Data source: Swiss Population Census 2000.

In Table 5 we compare the average composition of a neighbourhood inhabited by Swiss with low education level to the one inhabited by foreigners with a low education attainment. We observe that the over-exposure of foreigners with low education level to individuals of the same group amounts to about 9.5% in Geneva and to about 10.5% in Zurich.
