A challenge emerging from the literature on measuring and modelling segregation at multiple scales is how to map the results. This paper proposes a method based on the CMY colour model, using each of the C, M and Y values to represent one of the micro-, meso- and macro-levels of analysis separately, then combining them together in an overall map. It presents the method using a new index, a multilevel index of diversity, and with a case study looking at the ethnic diversity of state school pupils living in London’s neighbourhoods.
