The effect of tenure on spatial polarisation in Greater Manchester: evidence from the 2011 census
Nigel de Noronha
The presentation focusses on the extent to which different household types in the private rented sector (PRS) tend to live in particular neighbourhoods. It explores the influence of household type, tenure and neighbourhood characteristics such as types of property, poverty, diversity and household demographics.
Spatial econometric methods are used to show that the PRS contributes to the spatial polarisation of single people households and couples with dependent children in Greater Manchester. The analysis explores the characteristics of these neighbourhoods and the individuals living in the PRS using census aggregate data at neighbourhood level and census microdata.
