Significance levels: < 0.001 '***', < 0.01 '**', < 0.05 '*', > 0.05 '.' Global Moran's I values for those slums and population groups which were significant under a Monte Carlo test with 9,999 permutations (p < 0.05). We only report positive Moran values, i.e., those revealing global spatial clustering. For nearest neighbourbased distances, we report in parentheses the average distanceperslum in metres. Note that the strongest values occur with three nearest neighbours. We thus used this neighbourhood relationship in the subsequent bivariate Moran's I analysis.
