Abstract


Residential mobility is a process which has significant effect on the urbanscape. The preferred directional bias
of the mover households in Kaduna metropolis typifies the Schelling’s model of residential tipping which
ultimately resulted in residential segregation. The level of the segregation was subjected to analysis by the use
of multigroup analog, and was found to be 0.58. This index is moderately high. Also, residential mobility,
amongst other factors led to the expansion of the metropolis, strengthen family ties and above all led to the
socio-spatial sorting of the residents. This study recommends continuous research in residential mobility
because it is very useful in the forecast of future landuse patterns which are critical to urban development.
