It is well-known that theories of urban land use and location, set forth by von Thünen and his followers, explained quite successfully the agricultural and residential locations. Unfortunately, there has been virtually no comparative static analysis performed to probe their underlying properties. The present paper attempts accordingly to take further steps in the direction of generalizing the theory of intra-urban location and land use and to present a general comparative static analysis. It will be shown that, in general, the intra-urban optimum location is a function of the wage rate, the transport rate on the final product, the elasticity of demand, the population of the city and the income (or wealth) of the city. In the process, it is demonstrated that characteristics of production function are crucial in conducting our comparative static analysis.
