ABSTRACT
THE EFFECT OF THE HOUSING SITE DEVELOPMENT ON REGIONAL INCOME INEQUALITY
By Choi, Ha Young
Massive development of housing site by the public sectors has performed the critical role in improving the housing supply in Korea since the year of 1990s and there have been various attempts to evaluate pros and cons of those public-driven housing site developments. This research is targeting to find out the association between the housing site developments and the change of income inequality at the regional level, starting with the hypothesis that the housing site developments would have negative association with the level of income inequality in a region. The statistical results, which were performed in the form of panel regressions of 3 structures between 1998~2007, shows that we cannot assert that the housing site development would not result in mitigating of income inequality. It delivers us a political implication that developing housing site may not be an appropriate tool in terms of mitigating income inequality. We should design the housing site development projects with supplementary policies which could prevent the income gaps in a region from getting wider.

Abstract

Massive development of housing site by the public sectors has performed the critical role in improving the housing supply in Korea since the year of 1990s and there have been various
attempts to evaluate pros and cons of those public-driven housing site developments. This
research is targeting to find out the association between the housing site developments and
the change of income inequality at the regional level, starting with the hypothesis that the
housing site developments would have negative association with the level of income inequality in a region. The statistical results, which were performed in the form of panel
regressions of 3 structures between 1998~2007, shows that we cannot assert that the housing site development would not result in mitigating of income inequality. It delivers us a political implication that developing housing site may not be an appropriate tool in terms of mitigating income inequality. We should design the housing site development projects with
supplementary policies which could prevent the income gaps in a region from getting wider.
