Recent Contributions to the Urban Policy Debate.
Morrison, Peter A.; And Others
This report contains the text of five briefings on research in Rand's Urban Policy Analysis program. "Brief History of Rand's Urban Policy Analysis Program," by Barbara R. Williams, discusses the changing Federal role in urban policy, problems encountered in Rand's attempt during the early 1970s to examine the central policy problems of cities at different points along the continuum of growth and decline, and the development of Rand's later interest in defining a conceptual framework for assessing Federal policy impacts. "Urban Policy: The Demographic Context," by Peter A. Morrison, examines urban population trends including population dispersal, migration patterns, and changing household composition. "The Urban Impacts of Federal Policies," by Roger J. Vaughan, describes a Rand study investigating the reasons why jobs and people have been leaving many cities and the role of Federal policies in this process. "Federal Response to Urban Economic Development Problems," by Georges Vernez, examines the characteristics and effectiveness of Federal programs providing assistance directly to cities or their residents. "Contributions to Urban Policy and Directions for Future Research," by Barbara R. Williams, discusses the contributions made by Rand's Urban Policy Analysis Program and suggests directions for future research. (Author/BE)
