Within the residential mobility process, household structure is one of the main explanatory variables of location choice. In large metropolitan areas, such as the Barcelona Metropolitan Region (BMR), there are presently clearly new divergent residence settlement trends. While family households move to new suburbs, single- person ones and couples with no children go to urban centers or remain in them. Therefore metropolitan municipalities tend to be demographically segregated. Residential mobility is also one of the most important factors in metropolitan municipality growth, and household structure directly affects housing demand characteristics. Results show strong residential dispersion and a household structure territorial specialization.
