A Political-Ecological Analysis of Income Inequality in the Metropolitan Area.
Bollens, Scott A.
Urban Affairs Quarterly, v22 n2 p221-41 Dec 1986
Metropolitan development is not simply a result of ecological factors. Governmental organization affects the incentives of localities and helps determine patterns of growth. This study updates previous studies on factors influencing residential area income inequality. Modification of the variables in the ecological explanation will increase accuracy and policy relevance of research. (PS)
