Voluntary Urban Relocation: An Ecological and Attitudinal Study of a Housing Alternative.
Lede, Naomi W.
The aim of this investigation is to report on the perceptions and attitudes of a special group of residents toward voluntary urban relocation. Using respondents from two Model Cities neighborhoods in Houston, Texas, the survey focuses on specific socioeconomic variables such as income, education, occupation, employment status, family size, and age. In addition, the study explores attitudes and perceptions toward particular forms of public housing, namely, Section 235 and Section 236 of the National Housing Act, attitudes toward their community, attitudes toward voluntary urban relocation, and general information concerning relocation policies and procedures. When appropriate, trends as seen in the relationship of variables are noted and analyzed in terms of their overall implications. In this study, the problem of voluntary urban relocation and its many manifestations, as revealed through the perceptions and attitudes of a random sample of low-to-moderate income persons living in selected areas of Houston, is explored. The instrument of investigation was an interview schedule with questions on particular areas of concern. The interview schedule was divided into two parts. The first part sought answers to questions on the socioeconomic status of the respondents; the second, on resident attitudes toward voluntary urban relocation and select types of public housing.
