#HASTALKS is a seminar series curated by The Department of Health, Aging and Society at McMaster University.

Neighbourhoods in Bad Shape: Built form, neighbourhood decline, and household mobility

Neighbourhoods represent a complex combination of commerce, households, and the built environment. This complexity generates a variety of ways a neighbourhood could be in "bad shape"; from inefficient land use patterns, low quality housing stock, poor health of households, to low neighbourhood socioeconomic status. This presentation will explore how the physical shape of neighbourhoods influences the cost of municipal services, the role of housing characteristics in neighbourhood decline, and how health impacts a household's neighbourhood choice.
