Disentangling Area Effects: Evidence from Deprived and Non-Deprived Neighbourhoods.
Atkinson, Rowland; Kintrea, Keith
Urban Studies, v38 n12 p2277-98 Nov 2001
Investigated whether living in a deprived area compounded residents' disadvantaged status and whether area effects contributed to social exclusion. Data from surveys conducted in deprived and socially mixed neighborhoods indicated that both structure and agency were important in influencing neighborhood problems, though living in areas of geographically concentrated poverty tended to create additional problems for residents.
