National data show that rich cities tend to be green cities. Within Amsterdam, this correlation is not so obvious. In fact, rich neighbourhoods are on average less green, although the relationship is not statistically significant. There are poor but green neighbourhoods in Noord, West and Zuidoost. In Centrum, there are rich neighbourhoods with few trees. Key to the map: red = rich, green = green and grey = data not available.
