Well-being in Danish Cities

image of Well-being in Danish Cities

The report provides a comprehensive picture of well-being in the major Danish cities, by looking at a wide range of dimensions that shape people’s lives.  It contains both objective and subjective indicators meant to help policy makers, citizens and other stakeholders to better understand living conditions not only among cities but also among the different neighbourhoods within cities. This information can help policy makers build a development strategy based on well-being metrics, and choose the courses of action that will make the most difference in people’s lives.



Well-being inside the city

This chapter provides an assessment of how well-being outcomes are distributed across different areas and neighbourhoods of Danish functional urban areas. It first describes what areas of cities have been growing the most in terms of population during the last decade. Subsequently, evidence on the patterns of spatial segregation by income and occupational status is provided and discussed, together with an analysis of the spatial concentration of youth unemployment.
