Variations in Divorce Rates by Community Size: A Test of the Social Integration Explanation.
Shelton, Beth Anne
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v49 n4 p827-32 Nov 1987
Found a strong correlation between residential mobility rate and a measure of marital dissolution. Concluded that community size and marital dissolution correlated positively because of higher levels of residential mobility in large cities and urban areas than in small cities and rural areas. Found high residential mobility both an indicator and a source of low social integration. (Author/KS)
