IBARRA SALAZAR, Jorge  and  MARTINEZ IBARRA, Alejandra. Neighborly Coexistence and Neighborhood Satisfaction in Housing Complexes in Mexico. Rev. mex. cienc. polít. soc [online]. 2021, vol.66, n.241, pp.181-210.  Epub Mar 19, 2021. ISSN 0185-1918.

Mexican housing and urban policy emphasize the importance of the social environment by promoting social cohesion. Neighborly relations are a component of social cohesion. This article analyzes the influence of neighborly relations on neighborhood satisfaction, a decisive factor for individual quality of life in Mexican housing complexes. With data from the Residential Satisfaction Survey of 2013, which includes 512 housing complexes, different specifications are estimated using generalized least squares, probit and logit. Results show that neighborly relations variables help explain variations in neighborhood satisfaction across housing complexes. This result is consistent using different methods of estimation and control variables.

Keywords : neighborhood satisfaction; social cohesion; neighbors; residential satisfaction survey; Mexico.
