(The spatial patterns of white residential mobility in the Cape Town metropolitan area, South africa). [Ruimtelike patrone van blanke residensiele mobiliteit in die Kaapstadse metropolitaanse gebied.]

Zietsman H.L. (1980)

Intra-urban residential mobility exhibits pronounced spatial variations. Different indices of residential mobility were computed and mapped to investigate aspects such as overall mobility, out-migration, in-migration and internal migration for 73 urban subareas in the Cape Town metropolitan area. The mobility rates were correlated with demographic, social, housing and neighbourhood characteristics to identify the salient characteristics of urban subareas related to the phenomenon. It was found that overall mobility and out-migration rates were highest in sub-areas with high occupancy densities, old dwelling units, high rates of dissatisfaction with the lack of privacy and the occurence of crime. These neighbourhoods also rated low on an index of attractiveness supporting the hypothesis that low place utility acted as a push factor. In-migration was highest in the newly developing suburban areas characterised by recently settled young and less wealthy populations, in the Afrikaans speaking Northern suburbs. Internal migration is a feature of well established neighbourhoods with high scores on an index of attractiveness. The results emphasize the relationship between urban structure, urban growth and residential mobility. -English summary
