Testing growth-center hypotheses

Received 2 October 1973

Abstract. A technique developed by Casetti, King, and Odland (Casetti et al., 1971) for testing growth-center hypotheses is analyzed and found to be sound in principle, but requiring modification in certain specifics. Refinements and modifications relative to problems of scale, 'center-specificity', directionality, and spatial - temporal resolution are explained and demonstrated through empirical reanalysis of Casetti et al.'s original data, and also a case study of intraurban Milwaukee as a growth-center analog.
