Abstract:

This paper considers the interplay of three types of influences that affect the national system of urban settlement 1 Cultural predispositons, the basic values and axioms that define a societys aspirations and direction, even though they may seldom describe its actual performance 2 Migratory predispositions, the highly focused but as yet inactivated streams of potential migration that are defined by the history of past population movements 3 Government activities and programs, whose inadvertent secondary effects exert a powerful but undirected influence on the redistribution of population.
