Gentrification is a dynamic process due to historically disinvested neighbourhoods experience susceptible class displacement in spatially concentrated areas. The attraction of the physical environment might encourage change of social class in local areas, and such replacement might push the original residents and others who might also suceptible outward to the marginal area or even further areas. The susceptible class includes elder, poorly educated, lower income, and people of colour, while the middle- and upper-class residents who are relatively younger, highly educated, and higher income may be able to stay. Taipei city is the captial and a municipality located in northern Taiwan. The population of Taipei city is around 2.5 million in 2022, and is part of Taipei–Keelung metropolitan area which is the 40th most-populous urban area in the world. The investment in transit and urban renewal projects have stimulated gentrification in Taipei city in the past, present and will do so in the future. Therefore, this study attempts to explore the susceptibility of gentrification for different neighbourhoods at two approaches in Taipei city. The first level is to identify various stages (including early, mid- current, late) of gentrification based upon small sets of indicators based upon real estate value and demographic changes. During the first phase, the temporal and spatial patterns of gentrifictaion will be analysed. The second phase will then apply principle component analysis (PCA) to explore social-economic indicators related to gentrification in various stages of genetrification. The outcome of the principle component analysis can help monitor changing conditions among various stages of gentrification and come up with an appropriate public response to the negative impacts of gentrification.
