e. THE PROCESS OF POPULATION GROWTH AND MOBILITY IN THE NEW ORDER PERIOD

a. Population growth and mobility
According to Edward Ullman there are 3 factors that influence the emergence of urban interactions, namely:
1. There are areas that complement each other
2. There are opportunities for interaction
3. There is ease of transfer / transfer in space
In relation to the interaction of the city, population mobility can be interpreted as a population movement either territorially or geographically. The reciprocal relationship between cities and towns as well as between cities and villages can lead to the emergence of new phenomena which include economic, social and cultural aspects. This phenomenon can be positive or negative for villages and cities.
b. Growth centers in Indonesia during the New Order era
To find out the emergence of growth centers in Indonesia, there are 2 theories, namely:
1. The central place theory by Walter Christaller
Whereas the center for activity locations that serve the various needs of the population must be located in a central place, namely a place that allows for the maximum number of human participation. The central place can be in the form of a regency, sub-district, provincial or national capital. Each central point has an attraction for residents to live around it with a different reach.
2. Growth Pole Theory by Lerroux
That development that occurs anywhere does not occur simultaneously but appears in certain places with different speeds and identities. Areas that become centers of development are called growth centers or poles. It was from this pole that the development process spread to other areas around it.
c. Factors that cause a location to become a growth center
A location to become a growth center is caused by several things, including:
1. Physical condition of the area
2. Wealth of natural resources
3. Transportation facilities and infrastructure
4. Presence of industry

B. IMPACT OF THE GREEN REVOLUTION AND INDUSTRIALIZATION ON CHANGES IN TECHNOLOGY AND ENVIRONMENT IN VARIOUS REGIONS DURING THE NEW ORDER
