Changing urban geography - using house prices as a data source ( school exercise).

Andrew Kirby

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


This school exercise is in the practical quantitative tradition. It uses readily available data sources to create a graph and a regression line; residual points are then identified and they in turn provide a focus of interest, since they identify irregularities of a spatial pattern. The data - house prices and rateable values - relate to a less traditional area of urban study and reflects a concern with housing markets, movements of capital, ownership and political power as explanations of some of the urban patterns found today. It moves away from some of the simple determinants which first generation urban models proposed. -from Editor
