Show Summary Details


This chapter examines the character and the destinations of the out-migration flows in four large housing estates in Sweden. It analyses the destinations of the out-movers in terms of different kinds of neighbourhoods and compares them with the stayers using logistic regression. The findings reveal that the person most likely to leave the estate regardless of the destination is a young person between twenty to thirty-four years old, who is single and who has a relatively high level of education.

Keywords: out-migration flows; housing estates; Sweden; logistic regression; young person; education
