Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt


This report examines how the increasing geographical inequality in Copenhagen is reflected in young people's active citizenship. We examine this on the basis of three similar hypotheses: that, respectively, the extent of political participation, social capital and support to the social community among young people, depends on which part of town the young people come from. As we make use of hypotheses that are based on theory, we have a deductive approach to our study. Our main methodological approach is statistical analysis of survey data based on answers given by 365 young people from the 9th grade in Copenhagen. We conclude that the geographic inequality is not reflected in young people's active citizenship. There is no significant difference in young people's political participation, social capital or their support for the social community across different parts of Copenhagen. In a more resourceful study a random selection of the young people had been optimal to ensure high reliability and validity, as well as a better basis for generalization.
