dc.description.abstractBeijing experienced significant changes in its urban social spatial structure within last several decades. Economic growth, evolving urban planning policy and large-scale urban development have accelerated the pace of human displacement in Beijing. By applying a spatial-temporal analysis to identify social-spatial structural change in Beijing over time, this study aims to elucidate the driving forces of the process, draw useful findings for future urban planning in Beijing, and shed light on urban studies in other Chinese cities. Clustering analysis is performed to identify the spatial distribution pattern in Beijing in light of social-economic factors (migrant status, occupation and education level), as well as household and other demographic attributes. The GWR model is then used to examine the relationship between population change and distribution of diverse social groups during 2000 and 2009. Data on recent social phenomena are captured by the model and provide implications for planning and decision making, especially in light of new urban poverty and “social vulnerable groups.”
