Description: Analysis of motives indicates that minimal consideration is given to the physical environment when urban households select from among alternative residential locations. There is a greater awareness of, and response to the economic and social conditions of the residential environment among movers. When the motivations of highly-educated white-collar professionals are correlated with their household characteristics and residency experience, few variables discriminate at all between those who view the physical environment as an important motive for relocation, and those who do not. The physical environment is cited more frequently (and considered more important) during the relocation process by owners of residences, rather than renters.
