This chapter shows the living environment and conditions of the minorities. It reports on earlier studies that cover a wide range of topics, including the health of the minorities and migrants, and their chances of ending up in jail. The chapter then addresses the argument that different kinds of social problems are more common in communities which feel obligated to live a life set apart from society, and determines that the extent of segregation matters not only for evaluating social cohesion, but also for monitoring social justice.

Keywords:   living environment, health, jail, social problems, extent of segregation, social cohesion, social justice
