Abstract : A successful urban growth policy involves anticipating the effects of migration and future population distribution. The research reported attempts to identify quantitative relationships between individual - and household-level factors and the differential propensity to move. The findings indicate that redistribution of population may be largely influenced by habitual movers who change residence repeatedly and frequently. A second objective is concerned with improving techniques for projecting aggregate levels of mobility. The questions include how the effects of habitual movement are manifested at the metropolitan scale, and for predictive purposes, which aggregate indices hold the most important features of local population composition.
