dc.description.abstract An investigation of the pattern and determinants of frequent residential mobility among highly mobile low-income families in Winnipeg, this study features an examination of the pattern and reasons for frequent mobility among low-income families in an impoverished neighborhood using qualitative interviewing. The study particularly advances previous knowledge about the residential mobility of the urban poor, especially poor Abo iginal single-parent women in Winnipeg. The main findings are that highly mobile households are predominantly headed by poor, unemployed, single parent Aboriginal women. The major factors that influence residential mobility among low-income Aboriginal households are the need for low rental accommodation and more living space. Since many of them were unemployed or worked in low paying service jobs, the women limited their housing searches to inner city neighbourhoods where they could access low rental accommodation. Their need for low rental accommodation reflected their low incomes, low levels of education and reliance on government transfer payments such as social assistance. The other finding was that the residential mobility of the low-income Aboriginal women was determined in part by their perceived racial discrimination in the housing market. This perception served to limit their housing search to, and within, neighbourhoods with a high Aboriginal population. (Abstract shortened by UMI.) en_US
