For understanding neighborhood poverty and the consequences of living in poor neighborhoods, it is important that people in this neighborhood are segregated. This facilitates or allows the person studying the neighborhood to get a very clear focus of the conditions and circumstances of people living in this neighborhood and the study will be an unbiased study. If other people would have been living in this neighborhood, it would not provide a clear picture of the conditions and the state these people are in. For instance, if some middle class families are part of this poor community, the consequences of living in this neighborhood would not become easily apparent. As a result, this study would provide misleading understanding of the neighborhood poverty and consequences of living in poor neighborhoods.
