The Maghreb accent is mostly an inner city thing. The suburbs are much more "white".

At the 2011 census, 6.7% of the population in the city of Marseille proper were Maghreban immigrants (this does not include the children and grand-children of Maghreban immigrants born on French soil), whereas in the overall metro area, the Maghreban immigrants made up only 4.9% of the population. This means in the suburbs and commuter belt the Maghreban immigrants make up only 3.0% of the population.

Maghreban immigrants at the 2011 census:
- Marseille city proper: 6.7% of the total population
- suburbs and commuter belt: 3.0%
MARSEILLE METRO AREA: 4.9%

For comparison, this is the situation in Paris:
- Paris city proper: 5.0%
- suburbs and commuter belt: 5.1%
PARIS METRO AREA: 5.1%
