This study identifies a need for an overall conceptual framework for viewing residential mobility and proposes that a stress-response model supplies that need. A proposed model tries to incorporate all the various existing notions of stress in one basic model. It provides for a wide variety of human experiences and responses, attempts to explain the stress condition, and provides a basis for future research in a variety of problem areas. The model is tested, and found to be satisfactory with a sample of high-rise apartment dwellers who moved within London, Ontario.
