This paper focuses on the occurrence of ethnic and socio-economic residential segregation in Ust’-Kamenogorsk, a medium-sized city in Kazakhstan, using data collected by the author in collaboration with the Eastern Kazakhstan oblast’ statistical authority in an extensive questionnaire survey carried out during January 2001. Together with the marketisation of the city's housing resources, a number of Soviet legacies, including the major industrial enterprises’ housing strategies for their workers and the city's previous status as ‘closed’, are identified. Finally, the paper maps and analyses existing segregation patterns.
