The fourth of four reports examining the urban impacts of federal policies. A conceptual framework for policy impact analysis is established, and existing research reviewed. Techniques for analyzing residential location are assessed, and empirical results concerning the influence of amenities, job opportunities, local taxes and public services, and other factors are described and evaluated. Federal policies that affect residential location through their influence on these factors are distinguished and discussed. Recommendations for future research are made.
