The Centre for Analysis of Social Exclusion (CASE) is interviewing 200 families with children (under the ages of 18) in four low-income areas in England. Through successive rounds of interviews we are trying to understand how area conditions and area changes affect people who live locally. We are exploring people’s views of their neighbourhoods and of initiatives in the areas as well as their own experiences of how change impacts directly on individuals’ lives. Our aim is to find out about and document the ways in which areas improve or decline as local families see it. The Neighbourhood Study in Leeds and Sheffield is funded by the Nuffield Foundation and is the second part of the neighbourhood study started in two areas of London in 1999 (Mumford, 2001). The two areas of Leeds and Sheffield are also part of CASE’s 12 Areas Study (Lupton, 2001). This parallel study is tracking 12 low-income areas across England and Wales from the 1991 Census to 2006.
