In a story on Sunday’s page A1, the San Antonio Express-News contrasted mayoral candidate Manuel Medina’s claim that San Antonio is the most economically segregated city in America with a 2015 report by The Martin Prosperity Institute of the University of Toronto that ranked San Antonio sixth among all cities with the problem, and third among large cities. Other recent studies using different methodologies had different rankings.

Last year, the Economic Innovation Group of Washington, D.C., ranked San Antonio first in “spatial inequality,” an index similar to economic segregation.
