BACKGROUND PAPERS FOR THE METROPOLITAN STUDY: 1 -- The Project "Nested Dynamics of Metropolitan Processes and Policies" was initiated by the Regional and Urban Development Group in 1983 and work on this collaborative study started in 1983. This series of contributions represent "entry tickets" to the Project, i.e., initial statements by authors from individual metropolitan regions that are participating in the Project's network.

The aim of these papers is threefold. First, to provide some background information describing the processes of change within four principal subsystems: population, housing, economy, and transportation. Second, to identify major trends and crucial policy issues which are to constitute a focus for the subsequent analytical and modeling work. Third, to facilitate comparative studies of development paths among these regions and the dynamic interdependencies between the above subsystems.

The background material contained in this paper pertains to the Melbourne metropolitan region.
