Abstract / Description

Inner east London has been one of the consistently poorest areas of the city since the 19th century, and this study explores the use of mapping techniques to see how persistent the regional geography of poverty in east London has been since the 1880s. Although the area affected by poverty has shrunk since the 1880s, there is a core area that shows persistence of poverty throughout. One notable feature of change has been a substantial shift between the censuses of 1971 and 2001, which may be explained by changes in the housing market and the local community. Data handling and sampling issues are reviewed with a view to a future study filling the gaps in the longitudinal survey.
