Patterns of population densities in the Tel-Aviv metropolitan area

Received in revised form 5 November 1974

Abstract. This paper deals with an empirical investigation of the applicability of two well-known functions—the Clark and Newling functions—for the description of the patterns of population densities in the Tel-Aviv metropolitan area. The density pattern is examined in a temporal cross-section in order to trace systematic changes in it. The fitting of the two functions is done by two different methods in order to find out the influence of the method of measurement on the type of pattern generated. The findings of the investigation enable several hypotheses to be developed concerning the factors involved in structuring the density pattern of the population in the Tel-Aviv metropolitan area.
