Most of the research incorporated in this monograph was initially undertaken as part of the author's Ph.D. dissertation submitted to the School of Urban and Public Affairs, Carnegie-Mellon University. The research was funded through a Doctoral Dissertation Grant from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. The dissertation was a winning entry in the 1979-80 Ph.D. Disser- tation Competition of the North American Regional Science Association, funded through a grant from the Economic Development Agency of the U.S. Depart- ment of Commerce. Revisions and extensions of the initial research were con- ducted at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. I would like to thank in particular Chang-I Hua for his guidance and direc- tion in reviewing this research. In addition, I would like to acknowledge the useful comments provided by Robert Avery, Shelby Stewman, Tong Hun Lee, Swarnjit Arora, and Charles Manski regarding the substance and econometric approaches used in the research. Stephen Gale is acknowledged for his help in providing the data used in this study from a National Science Foundation Grant (SOC #76-12358).
