Description/Abstract

In this work we look at changes in the intra-metropolitan distribution of population. We use the classical determinants of urban growth to test which ones are more important within a metropolitan area. These determinants are: quality of life; the supply-oriented dynamic approach; and the city network paradigm. In particular we focus our paper on the role of quality of life variables in urban growth. In this sense, as we expect a potential endogeneity between quality of life and urban size (growth), we use a simultaneous equation model. We test our model empirically in a local dynamic framework, the province of Barcelona (Spain), in the period 1991-2004.
