ABSTRACT

The objective of the study is to analyse the spatial distribution and segregation pattern of low-income housing. For it, the proportion of low-income housing in each borough in Seoul was calculated to see the overall pattern among 27 boroughs. Then, dissimilarity index and entropy index which measure the degree of spatial segregation of low-income housing were estimated. The segregation indexes both range 0 to 1, where 1 represents perfect segregation and 0 means the opposite. Nextly, the study analysed the changing pattern of the indexes for decades. The estimated indexes indicated that the low-income housing in Seoul is fairly segregated from the housing of other income groups, even though the level of segregation is not as serious as in American and European metropolitan areas. In the concluding part, the study warned the possibility of more segregation in coming years and suggested that the aspect of social mix should be seriously considered in preparing city planning and low-income housing policies.
