A Multilevel Structural Resilience Model

When and for Whom do Neighbourhoods Really Matter?

Man-Kit Lei, Ronald L. Simons

The article analyses the relation between individual well-being and neighbourhood characteristics.

They propose a multilevel structural resilience model which recognises that various social processes may simultaneously function as both mediators and moderators of neighbourhood context on individual well-being.
