An explanation for the observed dispersion of retail establishments in urban areas
AbstractThe generalized formulation of the central focus cluster pattern by Dacey (1961) does not give specific results that are appropriate for empirical analysis of point patterns. One purpose of this paper is to give specific numerical properties for a special case of the central focus cluster pattern for which cluster centers have a circular normal distribution around the central focus and the members of each cluster are located at the cluster center. Another purpose is to establish that this restricted model yields the probability laws that empirical analysis indicates have good correspondence with the quadrat counts of retail establishments given by Artle (1959) and Rogers (1969).
