In most cases, the driving force behind these socio-economic factors is the rural-urban migration. As noticed by ( Samson 2004), growth of squatter settlements is also related with social and economic segregation in the urban areas, which may again result in urban-urban migration. The overall effect of migration is recognized as escalating structural discrepancy and unduly bumping up the number of urban unemployment. Many studies have tried to identify the causes of migration.

According to various sources, gentrification is the process in which wealthier people move into poorer neighbourhoods with the intent of establishing residence. As a result homes in the area undergoing gentrification tend to be refurbished or even re-developed. Local businesses also begin to earn more due to the influx of wealth into the local area which in turn stimulates the local economy (Eldredge, 2016). Furthermore gentrification leads to higher rentals as well as a shift in demographics as higher income groups slowly begin to replace the present lower income group in the area (Buisness Dictionary , 2015). Gentrification tends to have a negative stigma attached to it.

The traditional social ties where members of the extended family could ask for support from one another in times of hardships have been weakened by urbanization. The urban way of life coupled with social disintegration and western way of life has increased people’s tendency not to acknowledge relatives outside their nuclear family. Access to social support in this modern day has been decreased by the increasing rate of individualism. Polarization and social stratification where social groups are formed can also be considered as a positive effect of urbanization. The class system that exists in urban areas favors the rich and those whose voices can be heard, this development leads to the poor becoming poorer and the rich becoming richer.
People are slowly accepting gays into their community but the people that don’t respect them are also showing discrimination. Asian countries are still discriminating by not letting gays marry in their country. Also, many gyms around the world don’t allow gay members because they do not want gay men in the same locker room as straight men. They also don’t get the same treatment in the workplace.
