On the phenomenon of population turnaround or " counter-urbanization " (Inconnue)

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



Counterurbanization in the United States is characterized not only by such metropolitan-to-nonmetropolitan migration, but also by regional differentiation of population change due to the revolutionary development of transportation and communication technology. In contrast, many West European countries still remain in the phase of decentralization and the main stream of migration continues to occur from central cities to their suburban areas. The tendency is occurring in Japan as well. Various factors fo the generation of counterubanization in the United States have been considered. Though the technical development of transportation and communication has undoubtedly played a significant role as a foundamental factor of population change, the change of life style for American people cannot be ignored
