This paper investigates the relationships between neighbourhoods defined by people living or working in Cardiff. Young and retired people both have the largest neighbourhoods, possibly because both have more time to spend in their local area than other age groups. Gender differences were evident in the neighbourhoods of respondents who both live and work in an area, with females having larger neighbourhoods than males; this may reflect the types of employment undertaken by females who live and work in the same place. People living or working in close spatial proximity did not necessarily share the same neighbourhood definitions despite having similar personal characteristics
