Age segregation


Age segregation

Age segregation is separation of people based on their age and may be observed in many aspects of the modern society. [L Steinberg, "Adolescence" (4th edition, 1996, ) ]

Examples of institutionalized age segregation include age segregation in schools and age-segregated housing.

There are studies of informal age segregation among adolescents.
