Deprivation refers to peoples’ unmet needs (Noble et al. 2006) and focuses on what people can do or can be in their specific socio-cultural environment (Mcintyre et al. 2002). Examples of studies examining urban deprivation are North America (McDonald 2004, Langlois and Kitchen 2001); UK (Macintyre et al. 2008); Hong Kong (Forrest et al. 2004); West Africa (Oduro and Aryee 2003, Grimm and Günther 2007, Mitlin 2005, Abiodun and Boateng 1987).
