dc.description.abstract This research employed two methodological approaches to testing an evolutionary hypothesis of city growth and residential status redistribution. The expectation was that among small metropolitan areas, residential status patterns should be evolving toward the patterns which have been observed among older, larger cities.In the first stage of analysis, evidence suggested that residential status patterns have evolved in a predictable direction for sixteen of twenty cities between 19110 and 1970. A graphic link between "colonial" and Burgess patterns of status distribution was also found.Using tract level analysis, the results of the second research stage suggested that a positive relationship between status and distance of a tract from the central business district exists within the center city area but that a negative relationship is predominant in the suburban ring area. These findings question the basic assumptions from which the evolutionary hypothesis has beengenerated.
