Social Stratification and Residential Segregation in Haidian District, Beijing, China


Lucas Agudiez Roitman, Zhang Yanhan, Tan Zhuoli and Canfei He

In this paper we analyze social stratification and residential segregation in the context of the Haidian district in Beijing, China’s capital. We start looking at the multiple theories created by scholars to explain social stratification and residential segregation, as well as the interplay between them. Then we explain the methodology for a study to quantitatively measure the impact of these two characteristics in Haidian’s society. In order to perform these studies, for the macro level we will analyze official data on the overall urbanization process, including a historical analysis, a quantitative measurement of segregation applied to multiple districts, and the map visualization of factors that can cause residential segregation. For the middle level we will use a survey targeted at individuals from different socio-economic backgrounds. And for the micro level we will also personally interview people in high-income and low-income neighbourhoods to understand their relationships with individuals from a different social class and their personal view of society.
