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 neighbour-based distances, we report in parentheses the average distance-per-slum 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.
