Beboernes opfattelse af nedslidte og problemramte boligområderog hvad det betyder for deres ønsker om at flytte væk
It is one of the purposes of many area-based initiatives in deprived urban neighbourhoods to reduce the magnitude of residents that move away from the area. Especially it is often an objective to keep residents with jobs or with middle-sized incomes to stay to avoid a further concentration of poor people and social problems in the neighbourhood. This paper reports the result of a study of how residents in 12 deprived urban areas in Denmark evaluates their neighbourhood and of the connection between this and their wishes to move away. The study also exposes the differences between different groups among residents concerning their evaluation of the problems and attractions of the neighbourhood. Based on the results from the study some conclusions are made on what should be the most effective strategies for regeneration of deprived neighbourhoods.
