This paper contains a number of methodological suggestions with respect to the study of urban changes and urban policies. First, attention is devoted to the potentialities of the catastrophe theory framework to be used in the analysis of agglomeration advantages and in urban policy evaluation. Second, a multidimensional profile approach is discussed in detail. The applicability of a number of multidimensional methods, within the context of urban impact analysis, is reviewed. Finally, an attempt is made to identify the role of those approaches in the design of urban quality plans.
