This paper examines the population development of large urban regions. It discusses several hypotheses pertaining to patterns of settlement change in highly urbanized countries. Such hypotheses refer to interrelations between population growth and urban size, the role of migration and natural increase as components of urban population change, the overall spatial mobility, the hierarchical migration, and the age distribution of migrants moving between, out of, and into large urban areas. Empirical material used in the analysis is derived from IIASA's Comparative Study on Migration and Settlement.
