Les modèles de Chicago à l'épreuve de quatre métropoles françaises : Lille, Paris, Lyon, Marseille

Abstract : This research compares the distribution of social groups in the four largest French metropolitan areas (Paris, Lyon, Marseille, Lille). Our approach is in line with the urban population distribution studies developed by the Chicago School of Sociology, and more specifically with their models where the socio-demographic, socio-economic and "ethnic" dimensions are studied. These models describe the population distribution in Chicago in a context of urban growth, European migration inflows and strong economic and industrial dynamism. We wish to study their relevance in order to describe the distribution of the population in contemporary European cities. For this study, we use the finest spatial data (IRIS) from the last French population census (2013). We employ multivariate methods (ACP, CAH), spatial and a-spatial segregation indices to quantify inequalities in population distribution, and local indicators of spatial autocorrelation (LISA). The spatial structures that emerge from the treatments performed stress the relevance of patterns although they show differences in the variables used, which lead us to consider changes in the dynamics of social phenomena at work.
