Considerable attention has been paid to differences in health status between ethnic groups, but the potential impact of distinctive residential patterns on these differences has been little examined. This article suggests that analysing the processes underlying ethnic residential concentration may help to refine understanding of ethnic patterns of health, in particular by incorporating cultural and contextual effects into broader materialist explanations. A conceptual model of the relationship between concentration and health is proposed and tested in an exploratory secondary analysis of a London household survey. The implications for research and policy are discussed.
