Hi, I'm a long time lurker, first time poster. (Please be gentle)
I was just wondering if anyone could suggest literature about the migration patterns of young middle-class families. Anecdotally, I've known too many people who should be able to support themselves in the city, and who would prefer to live in the city, choose to move to suburbs because they feel cities simply cannot support families. The primary complaints being lack of space, cost of living, safety and quality of schools.
I'd like to investigate ways cities can retain families by addressing these concerns, but first I have to make a valid argument that it is a problem. Any help or direction would be supremely awesome.
