    • Abstract:
      This article tests basic propositions from the Burgess growth model which indicate a positive relationship between social status and residential distance from the urban core. The study is longitudinal, using data for 318 American metropolitan areas from 1950 through 1980. The study shows that over the thirty-year period: (1) Cross-sectionally the Burgess pattern is modal for American metropolitan areas; however, most communities do not show the clear-cut positive status/distance gradient. (2) The Burgess pattern is found most often in metropolitan communities that are industrially based, older, larger, more dispersed, and located in the industrial Northeast. (3) Over time, all categories of metropolitan areas moved in the direction of status distribution predicted by the model even though at any one point in time they may display the direct opposite of the Burgess model - upper status more residentially centralized than the lower status. (4) Longitudinal movement toward the Burgess pattern is associated with age, size, and industrial base.
