A report shows that Copenhagen has the highest poverty rate (7.6%) compared to the national average of 4.4%. Nørrebro, Copenhagen’s most diverse neighborhood, has the highest poverty rate (10.1%) and an employment rate of 48.3% for immigrants and 68.9% for descendants of immigrants (compared to 80.2% for Danes in the same area). Spaces in the neighborhood where people can informally gather as they shop or socialize provide opportunities to exchange information and find resources that can be instrumental in securing employment.
