Between the middle of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries there was a thirty-five fold increase in the number of cities with more than one million inhabitants(Toffler, 1970). The doubling time of the world's population is now some thirty-seven years, and much of that will occur in cities(Ehrlich and Ehrlich, 1970). PopUlation growth and urbanisation go hand-in-hand, and lead in their train fears of the over-use of resources and of social disorder and breakdown.

The route by which the administrators arrive at their positions can vary. The bureaucratic end of the dimension is characterised by officials who are central appointees. At an intermediary point are the elected representatives and the officers who may be appointed by the elected members or be themselves elected.

Barker and Gump (1964) showed these relationships held for large vs. small schools, Wicker (1969) showed these relationships held for churches. The overload models are not really models of crowding at all. They are stress models which mayor may not show that if people are crowded, they feel stress. The burden of derming crowding remains. The behavioral constraint models, however, show more promise in being able to derme crowding. If, for example, people do carry about them Sommer's "emotionally charged bubble" and this is violated, then crowding has taken place.
