ABSTRACT

Activity space is a crucial perspective of studying people’s activity locations and their interactions with urban space. Current studies of activity space mainly focus on certain specific social groups or limited to several neighbourhoods. Few research have examined the overall activity space in a city. This study aims to examine activity space from the perspective of urban social areas. By looking into the relationship between urban social areas and activity space, daily activities performed by people from different urban social areas are revealed. More specifically, two research questions are asked:

  1. What are the work/non-work activity space patterns in different urban social areas?
  2. What is the relationship between urban social areas and activity space?
