Given the locations of the residences, the ethnic identity or social status of the residents can be viewed as class labels assigned randomly or not.
Directional Clustering Tests Based on Nearest Neighbor Contingency Tables
For example, the residents of similar social status or same ethnic identity might tend to gather in certain neighborhoods which is an example of segregation as opposed to RL of the residences.

However, none of the existing methods for testing groups of SNPs can handle confounding structure such as occurs when related individuals of diverse ethnic backgrounds are included in the study, resulting in loss of power and spurious associations (Price et al. 2010; Balding 2006).
An efficient group test for genetic markers that handles confounding
The first was the Genetic Analysis Workshop (GAW) 14 (Edenberg et al. 2005), which included data from over eight ethnicities and numerous close family members—1,034 of the 1,261 individuals in the dataset had parents, children, or siblings also in the dataset.
