The Taeubers demonstrated the value of census mapping of residential and educational segregation in the United States. Their early attempt to integrate quantitative segregation research and cartographic techniques (Negroes in Cities, 1965), used the dissimilarity index to compare residential segregation in 207 U.S. cities.
