The economics of the rural to urban migration turnaround in Metropolitan and regional change in the United States.

Auteurs :
CHALMERS, J. A.
GREENWOOD, M. J.

Description :
The authors argue that the turnaround cannot meaningfully be considered apart from conditions in the nation's most highly urbanized areas, and then treat in some detail the causal forces that have been suggested as possible reasons for it. Finally, recently developed time-series data on migration and employment growth are used to examine the magnitude of the linkages between these two variables in large metropolitan areas compared to nonmetropolitan areas. Their findings lead the authors to speculate that the shift is likely to continue during the 1980s, when it may well become even more pronounced.
