The purpose of this study is to evaluate, on a micro level, the reasons that cause the upper socio-economic class of the population to emigrate from or immigrate to a development town. Such an evaluation may help create a spatial policy that will facilitate the absorption of high-level socio-economic groups of the population into development towns. This process is essential for the socio-economic prosperity of the development towns.

The development towns that were chosen for this study were Kiryat Shmona, as a town that is remote from the core; Hazor Hagelilit, as a small town located closer to the center of the country; and Migdal Ha'Emeq, as a town located in close proximity to the Haifa Metropolitan area and a successful development town that has managed to attract professionals and "strong" households.
