Residential Migrations and Aspirations of Black Homemakers: A Comparison of County, Town, and Metropolitan Residents in South Texas.
Copeland, E. Leonard; Upham, W. Kennedy
A study of black migration, examining the aspirations and behavior of homemakers in metropolitan and nonmetropolitan Texas, was made in this report. Data were collected from interviews with 553 homemakers. Factors examined in the analysis included type of residential area, homemaker's age, tenure status of the household, reported place of residence 5 years earlier, type of residential area in which most of the homemaker's life had been spent, and number of residential moves made by the respondent within the previous 5 years. Major findings were that the strongest pattern of preference among the respondents was to live in places within the broad size category in which they were already residing, that the age variable is basic to the analysis of mobility, and that homeowners were less desirous of moving away from their present community than renters were.
