With the use of longitudinal data on a representative national sample of families, three facets of the process of residential change and mobility are explored in this paper: the incidence of perceived housing and neighborhood problems, the relationships between these problems and satisfaction with house and neighborhood, and the impact of these problems on actual mobility. Blacks and those on welfare re neighborhood were found, but specific problems in the residential environment appear to have no strong or direct effects on actual moves.
