Résumé

The paper applies an urban growth model in which determinants and indicators of growth (population, employment, wages, and human capital) appear on both sides of the equation. The model captures feedback and circular effects grounded in a general equilibrium perspective. The econometric model, a seemingly unrelated regression panel (SUR-P) with city fixed effects, is estimated for a system of 135 Canadian cities. The results reveal a system in which the determinants of growth for cities are largely consistent with the literature but also that the same determinants (city attributes) affect differently growth depending on the indicators selected.
