Since the mid-nineteenth century the concentration of disadvantaged households within some and not other urban and suburban neighbourhoods has been a key concern in most cities across the globe. During this period diverse phrases have been used to describe these disadvantaged neighbourhoods, ranging from more emotive terms such as slums, through to more theoretical and policy-oriented descriptors such as localised disadvantage, neighbourhood deprivation, neighbourhood disadvantage, and neighbourhood exclusion amongst others. During this time there have been periods when the focus on neighbourhood disadvantage has intensified as a result of significant shifts such as the rapid appearance of slums and ghettos as industrial cities emerged in the late nineteenth century and again more recently as cities transitioned again into postindustrial urban centres.
