In addition, friendship and neighbourhood patterns, racial attitudes and the advantages and disadvantages of living in low-cot flats were covered. The first chapter touches on the background of the study and review of literature. In the second chapter, the author explains the criteria for the selection of flats, households and respondents, the questionnaire, the problems of the interview and the limitations of the study as a whole. The results are presented and discussed in the third chapter. Conclusions and suggestions for the solution of various problems are presented in the fourth and final chapter.
