The primary objective of this research was to measure the social and physical impacts of successive redevelopment or upgrading on consolidated informal settlements in São Paulo, Brazil. The project was undertaken by teams of American and Brazilian researchers, in partnership with associations in two communities previously studied ethnographically by Kristine Stiphany (dissertation research), who together (1) developed the survey instrument; (2) implemented a combined survey and post-occupancy analysis across 1,200 households in two settlements; (3) constructed the ComuniDADOS interactive web application to visualize data findings; and (4) assessed 3D scenarios for areas of risk identified by the study.
