Abstract

Intra-Urban Residential Mobility: The Family Lif e Cycle Mo del and the Influence of the Renter/Non-Renter Dichotomy Lee Boon Thong Department of Geography, University of Malaya. Many factors account for why families or households move from one residence to another in an urban area and it is an enormous and difficult task to attempt to isolate or rank the factors in ordered importance. This is because many of them do not operate singly but often in company with others. Nevertheless, studies in Western cities by Rossi (1955),' Maisel (1966),' and Simmons (1968),' for examples, have shown that one important group of variables that consistently affect intra- urban residential mobility is that associated with the family life cycle. In fact, Simmons (1968) concluded that over half of intra-urban mobility within a moderately growing city in the United States "results from the changing housing needs generated by the life cycle."4 The Family Life Cycle and Residential Mobility The family life cycle model postulates that decisions to move from one resi- dence to another are motivated largely by the stage reached in the cycle and the con- sequent family demands for space.-' During the pre-child stage (that is, premarriage or couples
