Breaks, however, do not necessarily continue. The first commentators to note some urban population revival were Cheshire (1987) in Europe, and Long and DeAre (1988) and Frey (1993) in the US. In some of the large FURs of northern Europe, such as London (Champion and Congdon, 1987) and Copenhagen (Matthiessen, 1983), the maximum rate of outflow of migrants from the core cities was observed in 1971 or 1972. Although loss continued, the rate of loss from migration fell continuously until about 1980, and positive migration gain was observed for a few years in the early 1980s.

1982) or van den Berg (1987), it was conceived of as a theory of the "stages of urban development". City regions were defined as functional urban regions (FURs) using criteria developed from those used by Berry (1973) to define his daily urban systems for the US. A set of core cities were defined in terms of employment concentrations, including all contiguous local areas with densities of jobs exceeding a given threshold; then a hinterland for each urban core was defined on patterns of commuting.

They also support the hypothesis that the development of the transport system is an influence on the degree of primacy of a country's urban system. The size of the main city falls in countries as their transport system becomes more highly developed. The implication appears to be that lower transport costs are associated with a more dispersed urban population. Because of problems of endogeneity and causality the authors re-estimate some of their main models using instruments and testing the timing of events.
