Special Lecture by Professor Cho Youngha at Oxford Brookes University 


About: “Moving to more deprived areas: what is happening? why?”

Date: April 14, 2015

At: KRIHS


The Housing and Land Research Division at KRIHS invited Professor Cho Youngha at Oxford Brookes University as a lecturer for Special Lecture for New Knowldege Sharing. Professor Cho gave a lecture titled “Moving to more deprived areas: what is happening? Why?” on April 14, at KRIHS.

  In the lecture, Professor Cho presented her research on the characteristics of high income households moving to deprived areas. The UK government publishes the Indices of Deprivation which is made up of significant indicators, such as income, employment, and health, to deal with economic and social problems. According to the Indices, high income households in general live in the “desired” areas, while low income households live in the more deprived areas.  

  But recently high income households have often been found to move to deprived areas. Professor Cho focused on this trend and analyzed the high income movers using regression models. The analysis found that households with higher income, of ethnical minority, and  without children tend to own house in the more deprived areas and in general are satisfied with their current home.

  Participants discussed the research outcomes and methodologies presented in the lecture and talked about how to apply the outcomes into domestic housing market. The participants included Director Kim Taehwan of Land Management and Urban Research Division, Associate Research Fellow Kim Geunyong, and Managing Director Park Chungyu of Center for Real Estate Market Analysis.
