Denmark has a list of particularly deprived neighbourhoods, published every year since 2010 – the so-called ghetto list. In 2018, Danish politicians found it necessary to distinguish between deprived neighbourhoods, ghettos and hard ghettos. So in 2018, by political definition, we have 16 hard ghettos, which altogether hold approximately 50,000 residents. We also have 25 ghettos and 57 deprived neighbourhoods. All the neighbourhoods are social housing areas.
