C. Spatial Distribution

Studies with an emphasis on locational patterns and their interpretation.

C.1. General Spatial Distribution

Studies of rural and urban populations considered together. Studies that are concerned primarily with the movement of population are classified under H. Migration . Studies concerned with the definition of urban or rural areas and with boundary changes are classified here or in O.1. Population Statistics, General Aspects .

In: Coping with sustained low fertility in France and the Netherlands, edited by Nico van Nimwegen, Jean-Claude Chesnais, and Pearl Dykstra. NIDI/CBGS Publication, No. 27, 1993. 129-59 pp. Swets and Zeitlinger: Berwyn, Pennsylvania/Amsterdam, Netherlands. In Eng.
"We will try here to assess...what the effect could be of sustained low fertility on the regional distribution of the French population, and how net migration could counteract the fertility differences between spatial units....We start by assessing the differences in fertility between the various departements in France and observing their past evolution. Particular attention will be devoted to the convergence assumption which states that spatial differences in fertility levels are decreasing. We will also examine, in more detail, the evolution of other fertility characteristics, such as the mean age of mothers at their children's birth, to see if this convergence hypothesis holds for all fertility variables. The stability of the evolution of such indicators during the past will give us an indication of their usefulness for making population projections. We will also assess the stability of differences between departmental net migration and their links with departmental fertility."

"The argument that conventional maps give a misleading visual impression of spatial information about a population is not new....However, the techniques which can be applied to tackle this problem have recently improved as the provision of large datasets and access to microcomputers has spread. This paper presents new and arguably less misleading maps which have been devised by an innovative computer algorithm to visualise 1991 Census data [for Great Britain]."

The authors "describe population distribution trends [in Mexico] from 1895 to 1990 as they relate to a division of political and administrative factors. The study provides an estimate of population dispersion throughout time by analyzing the behavior of state populations with respect to the distance between state capitals and the Federal District. It also provides 100-year curves describing time variations of population dispersion and explaining the process of decentralization of displacement from the country's main population center to its peripheral areas."

Some alternative ways of presenting maps of spatial population distribution are examined using northern Leicestershire, England, as an example. The authors conclude that dasymetric and isarithmic maps are a desirable alternative and can be relatively easily generated using satellite imagery in a geographical information system.

"This chapter presents a method for assessing the impact of various patterns of change in regional fertility and migration on the population size and its spatial distribution. The method is based on stable population theory, in particular the theory of the reproductive value....[The author] applies the theory to assess, analytically and numerically, the consequences of different patterns of regional fertility change on the distribution of the population, given the prevailing regimes of mortality and migration. [He then] presents and discusses an application to the Netherlands."

C.2. Urban Spatial Distribution

Studies of urban populations, including those of metropolitan areas and suburban and semi-urban zones. Also includes studies on urbanization insofar as they relate to the effects of migration on urban areas or the socioeconomic and demographic structure of urban populations. Studies on the actual process of rural-urban migration are coded under H.6. Rural-Urban Migration .

In Fre.
This is a general review of research on urbanization that was conducted at the Institut National d'Etudes Demographiques (INED) in Paris since World War II. The study is in two main parts, the first of which concerns housing and individual migration, and the second, urban populations and urbanization in France. The report shows how research has evolved from a focus on postwar housing shortages to the development of new towns and urban centers in the 1960s, and to a concern with the relationship between housing and life-styles in the 1980s. Some of the most recent research concerns theoretical aspects of the concept of the town in the context of contemporary developments in Europe as a whole.

The author examines urban growth in Mexico between 1960 and 1980, with a focus on the socioeconomic factors driving such growth. He makes the case that urban growth is due more to population increase in rural areas than to any expansion of the urban infrastructure.

In Fre.
Some problems concerning the study of urbanization in the modern world are examined, with particular reference to methodological pitfalls inherent in the need to examine urbanization in both time and space. Belgian examples are used to illustrate the validity of estimates of urban population size, the selection of spatial criteria in demographic analysis of urban populations, how to distinguish urban from rural populations, and how to estimate rates of urban population growth.

The results suggest that two major aspects of current urbanization trends are a slowing down in the pace of urbanization, and the emergence of a large number of new urban settlements on the periphery of existing cities.

This is an analysis of trends in urbanization and urban growth in the Indian state of Madhya Pradesh, and is based primarily on census data through 1991. The study begins with a description of the state, its population, and of urbanization trends since 1901. Chapters are included on the dynamics of urban population growth, fast growing and stagnating towns, specific characteristics of selected towns, and correlates of growth of selected towns from 1971 to 1981. Two case studies complete the work, one of Korba, a rapidly growing town, the other of Maheshwar, a stagnating town.

"What...is the status of the small town today and what are the prospects for future survival in an ever urbanizing system of settlement? This paper will explore these questions and suggest some research needs to better understand the problem. With data from the latest [U.S.] census we can now see the patterns of change over the decade and with the more detailed census geography for 1990, we will be able to better understand the relationship between place and nonplace trends in the future. Several emerging patterns stand out as characteristic of small towns." Comments are included by Nina Glasgow, Philip Groth, James R. Pinkerton, and Donald W. Thomas (pp. 83-107).
