Neighbourhood Child Poverty in Sweden /

by Gustafsson, Bjorn | Institute for the Study of Labor | Osterberg, Torun.

Publisher: Bonn, Germany Institute for the Study of Labor 2010Description: PDF.Other title: Institute for the Study of Labor (IZA). Discussion paper.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: April 2010 Bibliography : p. 14Summary: This paper takes a fresh look at child poverty at the neighbourhood level in the three metropolitan regions of Sweden using unique data for 1990, 1996 and 2002. We find that the number of neighbourhoods with high child poverty rates is much larger in 2002 than in 1990, but also that most poor children in the three regions live outside poor neighbourhoods. A disproportionally large fraction of children with backgrounds from low- and middle-income countries live in poor neighbourhoods. Regression analysis shows that high neighbourhood poverty rates are mainly due to parents' low employment and to low parental education.Availability: (1)

Urban regeneration, scale and balancing social mix /

by Arthurson, Kathy | Brotherhood of St Laurence.

Publisher: Fitzroy, Vic. The Brotherhood of St Laurence 2008; Research & Policy Centre 2008Description: PDF.Other title: Social Inclusion and Place Based The Brotherhood of St.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: 13 June 2008 The social inclusion and place based disadvantage workshop was held on the 13th of June 2008 at the Metropole Conference Centre in Fitzroy, Victoria, under the auspices of the Brotherhood of St Laurence?s Research & Policy Centre and the Victorian Government?s Department of Planning & Community Development. It was hosted by Paul Smyth, facilitated by Allison McClelland, and coordinated by Kristine Philipp. These proceedings are aimed at fostering, informing and stimulating public reflection, discussion, debate, research, and policy initiatives to address one of the central challenges facing contemporary Australian governments, industries and communities. Bibliography : p. 9Summary: Whilst the debate about a socially excluded underclass has been contentious, it has contributed to the stigmatisation of areas in which social housing is concentrated. This affects social housing tenants through increased difficulty in gaining employment due to negative perceptions of particular areas and lack of role models in terms of employment participation and educational achievement. There are also other implications, such as poor quality local services and lowered local amenity. Recent reforms to implement tighter assessment criteria for accessing social housing mean that these issues around concentrations of disadvantaged tenants are likely to increase rather than decrease. These circumstances have prompted renewed interest by urban and social planners and housing policy makers in the idea of 'social mix'.Availability: (1)

The housing impacts of neighbourhood change: gentrification, affordability and displacement /

by Rowland, Atkinson | Australian Housing and Urban Research Institute | Wulff, Maryann | Reynolds, Margaret | Spinney, Angela.

Publisher: Melbourne, Vic. Australian Housing and Urban Research Institute 2011Description: HTML.Other title: Gentrification and displacement : the household impacts of.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Project Number: 40548 URL contains Positioning Paper: No. 115: Gentrification and displacement: a review of approaches and findings in the literature Final Report: No. 160: Gentrification and displacement: the household impacts of neighbourhood change Research and Policy Bulletin: Issue 137: Gentrification and displacement: the household impacts of neighbourhood change Final Report downloadedSummary: Gentrification refers to the migration of higher income households to lower income neighbourhoods. The process has become evident in many large regional and major metropolitan areas across Australia and thus follows a worldwide trend in which a growing service sector economy and lower cost, central city neighbourhoods have combined to produce notable shifts in the socio-demographic composition of centrally located neighbourhoods. More households on higher incomes have generated increased competition for housing resources, particularly in more central urban areas. These shifts have also occurred as State and city governments have acted to improve and redevelop central city areas which sometimes were run-down or had small residential populations. With interest in housing affordability and, increasingly, the role of the private rental system at the fore of policy debates regarding housing stress, the research was intended to offer insights into the way that socio-economic migration in Australia?s cities is affecting the position of low-income households. It is clear that gentrification has become a significant factor, influencing the cost of housing in the neighbourhoods it has touched. In areas like Yarraville and Richmond in Melbourne, Paddington and Newtown in Sydney, significant migration by high-income professional households have raised prices and rents by significant margins.Availability: (1)
