2004 NSA Quality of Life Profile

Charlotte Neighborhood Quality Of Life Study

The 2004 Neighborhood Quality of Life Study evaluates Charlotte's neighborhoods based on social, crime, economic and physical conditions. The City of Charlotte has been conducting neighborhood level Quality of Life studies since 1993. The 1993 and 1997 studies focused on the 73 City Within A City (CWAC) neighborhoods. The 2000 study expanded the geographic focus to encompass 173 neighborhood statistical areas (NSAs). The NSA framework includes all parts of the city as well as any area that will eventually become a part of Charlotte.

The 2004 study follows closely the design and format of the 2000 and 2002 quality of life studies. The composition of variables has changed slightly in order to strengthen the rigor of the statistical analysis. However, the baseline neighborhood scale quality of life framework developed in 2000 remains comparable to the 2002 and 2004 data. As in earlier studies, this research converts the individual statistical values into three neighborhood-ranking categories ... "stable," "threatened," and "fragile." In this way, holistic neighborhood changes can be examined for positive and negative shifts.

What does NSA mean?

The NSA or Neighborhood Statistical Area boundaries were developed by the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Planning Commission staff to delineate the city's suburban residential areas and to provide consistent community boundaries with common identities. The NSA structure fosters consistency in neighborhood definition and enables statistical analyses for more efficient studies.
