Spatial Inequality. Corinne Paige Kate Leticia. Explain the spatial and ecological dimensions of the issue.
Spatial inequality is the unequal amounts or quantities of resources and services depending on the area or location, such as medical or welfare. Some communities have a greater range of resources and services and then those that would be able to change that do not live near or associate with those communities making it almost impossible to change this cycle. The space within the different locations is the clustering of various groups of people who share similar socio-economic statuses.
Spatial inequality is caused by various reasons, such as religion, culture, or race. Areas of people in poverty will remain that way until various resources and services are introduced. Resources are things such as fresh drinking water. Services include educational institutions and hospitals/other health services.

An unequal society leads to social unrest, a growing dependence on social welfare, a taxation system to redistribute the wealth, programs to improve poor people’s quality of life and the growth of non-government organizations (NGOs) such as The Smith Family.
The taxation office takes more money off people who earn more rather than take a small amount of money from people who earn less.
