A survey conducted by the Pew Center for Civic Journalism (2000) concluded that 18 % of Americans feel that urban sprawl and land development were the most important issues facing their local communities, tied with crime and violence. Respondents to the survey were almost evenly split between wanting local government to limit further development to already built-up areas and those wanting more scattered development in previously undeveloped areas. However, spatial development patterns are the aspect of urban sprawl that researchers know least about. What causes urban sprawl and how much is urban development sprawling taking place in the United States? The paper “Causes of Sprawl: A Portrait From Space” by Burchfield et al. (2006) examines the extent to which the United States urban development is sprawling and what determines differences in sprawl across space.
