Abstract

The number of subcenters identified for the Chicago metropolitan area rises from nine in 1970 to a forecasted 24 in 2020. Existing subcenters are becoming larger, and are particularly likely to expand along major expressways. OLS and semiparametric estimates suggest that employment density rises whereas population density falls near subcenters.
