South Jersey residents more likely to view neighborhoods poorly, poll shows

July 16, 2017

About 32.8 percent of residents in the southeastern part of the state said their neighborhoods were in fair or poor condition, twice the percentage of respondents who felt the same way about neighborhoods in other parts of the state.

The study was funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and included responses from 1,202 people recorded in October and November.

Joel Cantor, health policy center director, said the goal of the study was to see where organizations such as the foundation could make more investments, and to inform legislators and leaders who are in positions to make life better for residents.
