socio-structural change, housing estates, resident population, Hungary
High-rise housing estates could be characterised already in the socialist period by specific social features and structure. The mixed social structure, the ”estate society” and ”estate life” appeared namely in Hungary as brand new phenomena. The change of the socio-economic regime was a turning point in the development of housing estates. A devaluation of their prestige has been indicated by the accelerated housing mobility, a rapid fluctuation of the resident population in these quarters and a general intention to move out. After the change of power a profound transformation of the social environment has taken place and the previous balance of the social pattern has been broken. A stabilisation of the population is under way turning these estates into independent residence classed. This paper presents the effects of the privatisation and the housing market affecting the housing estates, together with the main features and tendencies of the filtering down process in the Hungarian housing estates. Key words: socio-structural change, housing estates, resident population, Hungary
