For neighbourhoods of predominantly permanent urban residents, we referred to official statistical data. The Civil Affairs Bureau, which is responsible for identifying MLSS recipients, maintains yearly-based statistics at the street-office level. The rate of MLSS can be used to assess the poverty situation of permanent social groups. Therefore, low-income neighbourhoods are defined as those that exceeded a certain statistical threshold of MLSS recipients. We selected the places with the highest concentration of MLSS recipients where possible.
