The study reports that birth rates are lower than ever, employment is at a standstill, migration to the Region from elsewhere in the country has slowed to the point--where for the first time in 1972--more people left than entered, and the ratio of family incomes has been sliding despite modest improvements in other areas. These indicators are perhaps the most challenging that the Region has ever confronted and the Commission views them as the signal of a basic shift toward a much more stable situation that calls for a different type of planning than has taken place in the past. It sees this period as a time to conserve, not expand; to rehabilitate, not build and to repair rather than replace, if possible.
