    VAN DER LAAN L. (1998) Changing urban systems, an empirical analysis at two spatial levels, Reg. Studies 32, 235-247. Changes in the urban system are increasingly caused by the interdependency of the local and regional level. This requires a framework which incorporates the processes of both levels. On the basis of an empirical analysis of commuting patterns and urban labour markets in the Netherlands, a framework is proposed which relates changes in the urban system to changes in the regional employment structure. VAN DER LAAN L. (1998) Transformer les systemes urbains: une analyse empirique a deux niveaux spatiaux, Reg. Studies 32, 235-247. La transformation du systeme urbain remonte de plus en plus a l'interdependance des niveaux local et regional. Cela laisse supposer un cadre qui comporte les processus des deux niveaux. A partir d'une analyse empirique de la structure des migrations quotidiennes et des marches de l'emploi urbains aux Pays-Bas, on propose un cadre qui rapporte la transformation du systeme urbain a l'evolution de la structure de l'emploi regional. VAN DER LAAN L. (1998) Stadtsysteme im Wandel: eine empirische Analyse auf zwei raumlichen Ebenen, Reg. Studies 32, 235-247. Veranderungen im stadtischen System werden zunehmend durch die gegenseitige Abhangigkeit der Lokalund der Regionalebene verursacht. Es drangt sich dabei der Gedanke auf, sie durch eine Grundstruktur zu ersetzen, welche die Vorgange beider Ebenen in sich vereinigt. Unter Bezugnahme auf eine empirische Analyse von Pendlermustern und stadtischen Arbeitsmarkten in den Niederlanden wird eine Rahmenstruktur vorgeschlagen, die Wandel im Stadtsystem mit Veranderungen in der Regionalstruktur des Erwerbslebens in Beziehung setzt.
