Item description for Location Dynamics of Households by Hans Boorsma & Hans Bootsma...
The question was addressed in this study is whether the shift in spatial policy from bundled deconcentration' towards compact city' was accompanied with a change in location preferences of households (reurbanization). Generally, five explanations are put forward for the occurrence of a reurbanization process. Temporary economic change due to the recession in the early eighties. Demographic change as a result of postponed union formation and family formation and a rise in female labour force participation. Social-cultural change in the form of a positive reassessment of urban living. Finally, the increase in the number of foreign migrants. The study is one of the first that is able to sort out the relative value of each of these explanations. In addition, this study gives useful information for policymakers who are concerned with raising social-economic levels in the city. The insight that is gained in relocation decisions, provide clues for a policy aimed to hold and to attract certain type of households in the city.
