Abstract

Patterns of urbanism are delineated for the 60 chartered cities using principal components analysis with varimax rotation to orthogonal factors on 16 population and settlement characteristics drawn from the Census of 1980. Four factors—labelled economic complexity, household stability, ethnic diversity and cultural complexity—are computed and interpreted. A profile of the cities' scores on these factors is provided. The factors are correlated with 10 variables conceptualized as denoting social welfare. Comparisons between the four factors on the one hand, and previous local findings on the modernity of cities and on the urban hierarchy on the other, are made. Implications of the analysis and suggestions for further research are discussed.
