SILVA, Késia Anastacio Alves da; CUNHA, José Marcos Pinto da  and  ORTEGA, Guilherme Margarido. A demographic perspective on the constitution of the São Paulo macrometropolis: population flows, integration and complementarity. Cad. Metrop. [online]. 2017, vol.19, n.40, pp.721-748. ISSN 2236-9996.

The objective of this study is to analyze the formation of new urban morphologies from the demographic perspective, which approaches not only the formation of vectors of population expansion, but also, and mainly, population flows, either motivated by a change of residence or caused by the development of daily activities. This article also aims to contribute to the debate about the constitution of a new urban form, the São Paulo Macrometropolis, which still lacks better and broader discussions and theoretical and empirical delimitations. To put it in a nutshell, the aim is to show that this new urban form has a clear counterpart in the process of spatial redistribution and population mobility.

Keywords : population’s spatial mobility; metropolization; city-region; migration; commuting.
