A comparison is made between the outward growth over the period 1960-1980 of two urban systems in the Netherlands, viz. the North and South wings of the Randstad. The growth is described by an analysis of the effects of residential migration. The effects are differentiated according to quantitative and qualitative characteristics. These latter include life-cycle and socio-economic dimensions. Besides these, generation-allocation flow matrices are studied. In this manner spatial housing subsystems are identified. The results of the spatial analysis are compared with "wave-models" of urban growth. These latter are criticized for their lack of spatial differentiation according to migrant-groups. Finally some implications for spatial policies are indicated.
