Abstract The purpose of this study is to analyze the socio-demographic characteristics of users of social welfare facilities in Seoul using GIS and to suggest implications for finding a direction for spatial improvement that reflects this. This is to improve the safety and convenience of aging social welfare facilities. The method of this study is to investigate the current status of facilities through literature review and to analyze spaces and users based on GIS. The results of this study were as follows; First, the social welfare center in Seoul is old seriously, and the current status of users is changing due to changes in the population of children, youth, and the elderly depending on the region. Second, the overall decrease in the population of children and youth and the increase in the elderly, single-person households, the elderly living alone, low-income households, and foreigners were confirmed. Third, the difference in socio-demographic changes of users by region was confirmed through cluster and ANOVA analysis. Based on the above results, it is necessary to plan so that the space can be used for multiple purposes according to the situation in consideration of the user's needs rather than planning the space by limiting it to a specific user or function. This is because it is constantly changing with socio-demographic changes.
