But that’s not necessarily the best way to go about it. As many North American cities deal with rising congestion on roads that can’t get any wider, city planners are struggling to introduce master plans that make most errands possible by walking or cycling, eliminating more vehicles.

A large set of density functions is estimated for population and employment in U.S. metropolitan areas in and Thus, relative central city and suburban measures of crime, taxes, etc., are used in an interactive model to explain population and employment suburbanization.
