As the capital of Estonia, Tallinn is also the country’s financial and business centre, having a strong labour market. During the Soviet regime, much of the workforce was recruited from Russia, Belorussia and the Ukraine, leading to high levels of ethnic urban segregation. Today, socioeconomic segregation are also became increasingly prevalent and whilst social inequalities tend to be less pronounced in Tallinn, compared to other Estonian cities, social and ethnic sorting in the housing market still takes place. Places of residence disadvantage are linked to social networks and communities, further adding to accumulated disadvantage.
