This paper considers a multi-agent simulation model of the population dynamics in a city, in which inhabitants can change their residential behavior depending on the properties of their neighborhood, neighbors and the whole city. The autonomous agent in the model is characterized by its economic status and cultural identity and these two properties differ in their nature. The economic status is supposed to be uni-dimensional and quantitative, while the cultural identity is treated as a multidimensional and qualitative feature. Special attention is devoted to the comparison of the consequences of the individuals' interactions according to these features.
