Description :
This article analyses residential satisfaction in China’s informal settlements through the examples of Beijing, Shanghai, and Guangzhou. It demonstrates that migrants and low-income groups are not less satisfied than nonmigrants or middle-range income earners; the most important determinant is social attachment within the community. Also, the perception of being excluded, or lacking neighborhood social attachment, significantly reduces residential satisfaction. It concludes that removing the social and institutional barriers for migrant integration into the city is likely the most effective way to enhance residential satisfaction and neighborhood quality.
