Abstract [en]

In attempting to understand the “paradox of redistribution”, a growing body of literature explores the role of misperceptions of inequality. Building on a theoretical framework positing residential segregation by income as a source of perception bias, the derived hypothesis that residential segregation by income lowers demand for redistribution is tested in this thesis. The analysis is conducted with access to nearly two decades’ worth of individual-level rotating panel data on political preferences as well as population-based measures of residential segregation by income. Continued study of the sources of misperceptions can help form a better understanding of divergence in political attitudes and of the paradox.
