Abstract

The main aims are to develop a model of residential location that emphasises the realities of social forces, market forces, and the institutions that link the 2; and to examine the role of location in the process of resource consumption in the fields of education, health and housing. The importance of residential location in the city is outlined, and some models of the housing market process are examined. An alternative framework for approaching location problems is then set out, followed by 3 empirical sections, considering the socioeconomic structure of housing spaces in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, the effects of distance on dental health in Newcastle, and the extent to which certain comprehensive schools draw on certain tenure groups, relating the latter findings to the educational attainment of the children in those schools. Concludes by considering various limitations of the author's model, and the academic and policy implications of the analysis. -after Author
