Why do shelter conditions differ in Ecuadoran cities and how do we know that they do?: a comparative locality study

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



The paper is an examination of forces operating at geographical scales from global to local which help to explain the shelter conditions of the working class in Quito and Guayaquil. The principal sources of evidence are a household-level survey of shelter and a survey of housing professionals with regard to the interpretation of the shelter conditions and differences. The study concludes with a richer understanding of both the empirical reality of urban Ecuador and the frameworks and concepts used to interpret it
