Slums, Projects, and People: Social Psychological Problems of Relocation in Puerto Rico

By Kurt W. Back | Go to book overview

3. Living Conditions

By the nature of the problem the survey concentrated on the urban residents at the lowest economic level in Puerto Rico. The six population classifications described in the preceding chapter were so designed that the sample drawn is representative of this group.

Three of the groups listed on pages 15-16 lived in slums and as yet had had no experience with moving for relocation. We shall call them collectively tile slum sample, but distinguish them by calling the first group (a) the general slum sample, as it was taken to represent the slums in general. The two others, (b) and (c), were taken to represent different stages in the relocation process and will be called Stage I and Stage II samples respectively. The fourth group, (d), represented project tenants. The last two groups represented movers, (e) the movers from slums and (f) the movers from housing projects.

In examining the living conditions of households in the sample, we shall consider the answers from only one respondent in each family; this should be the head of the household.
