Muller, Thomas; And Others
This report focuses on demographic and economic changes affecting urban households during the 1980s. Statistics regarding birth, fertility and mortality rates, marriage and divorce, and household formation are presented. Metropolitan and interregional trends in mobility are examined by racial, income and age groups. Growth rates of the national economy and its effect on household income are projected. Also indicated are projected employment levels and the distribution of jobs. The impact of these demographic and income changes on housing demand, education, health, police protection, day care, and aid to families with dependent children is assessed. (Author/APM)
