Abstract [en]

Large-scale suburbanisation is a relatively recent phenomenon in East Central Europeand is responsible for major socio-spatial changes in metropolitan areas. Little is knownabout the ethnic dimensions of suburbanisation, despite the existence of often sizeableRussian minority populations in some member-states of the former Soviet Union.We use individual-level Estonian census data from the year 2000 in order to investigatethe ethnic dimensions of suburbanisation. The results show that ethnic minorities have aconsiderably lower probability of suburbanising compared to the majority population,and minorities are less likely to move to rural municipalities*the main sites of suburbanchange*in the suburban ring of cities.
