The study of the relationship between the provision of local public services and residential segregation takes a relevant significance when the latter is considered as the social manifestation of spatial income inequality. In this paper, we address this relationship by analyzing how accessibility to local public services is equitably distributed among different social and economic groups for the case of Santiago Metropolitan Region of Chile (MR). For accomplishing this objective, we use different measures of accessibility to local public services such as transportation, public education, health care  and parks, information about housing values and exempted housing units from local taxes by census blocks, as well as, sequential generalized Lorenz curves and local indicators of spatial association (LISA).

Keywords: Accessibility to local public services; residential segregation; spatial income inequality.
