Sink estate, (The phrase shows up in a search but...)

Posted by Abe on June 18, 2004

The phrase "sink estate" shows up in a search but there really isn't much information. Does the phrase refer to poor housing conditions or poor employment or more generally poor socio-economic status? Is it purely slang? What would a government report call persons in the "sink estates"?
