1. Lu, Genghan. Cities and Domestic Migration: Revisiting Quality of Life and Business.

Degree: MS, Department of Economics, 2019, California State Polytechnic University – Pomona

Cities play a central role in human civilization. The idea of a ???metropolitan area??? is a concept of geographically adjacent cites forming an economy which is larger than the political boundaries of cities. In later discussions, a ???city??? denotes a ???metropolitan area??? instead of a ???city??? in conventional ideas. This study focuses on 283 major metropolitan areas in the United States in 2011 and investigates the local quality of business, life, and wider implications of the two measures in this country. This research is also an update to previous literature ranking city amenities from 1970 to 1994. The result suggests emerging metropolitan areas, such as Northern New Jersey, San Jose, Ventura-Oxnard-Simi Valley, etc., located in outskirts of super cities like New York City and San Francisco, having been preferred by businesses, have now developed to be big cities which provide extraordinary consumption and productive business amenities at the same time. In addition, the study finds out that in the latest decade, individuals, regardless their ages, would mostly prefer to move to cities with higher qualities of life. In terms of education and marital status, the result indicates that there are specifically more ???power couples???, preferring to migrate to cities with better life quality than ???non-power couples???. Advisors/Committee Members: Kerr, Craig (advisor), Lange, Carsten (committee member).
