The economic development made a dramatic progress in Shandong peninsula since reform and opening-up policy implemented in China 20 years ago, and the urban and rural residential area has experienced a remarkable expansion and exerted profound influences on land use and ecological environment in this region. Mastering spatial-temporal distribution and transformation characteristics of residential area contributes to the region's sustainable development significantly. This article chose the north of Shandong peninsula as its study area, the residential area information was obtained and then its expansion was studied, and corresponding influencing factors were discussed. On temporal scale, the periods of 1986, 1992 and 2004 were selected to analyze residential area expansion characteristics quantitatively since reform and opening-up by means of urban expansion index, center of gravity and fractal dimension, and the results showed the pattern of urban expansion transformed from southeast to northwest, and the dimension index increased from 1.68 to 1.75, which showed obvious arbitrary of urban expansion. Furthermore, the influences of social and economic factors such as GDP, rate of population urbanization and investment in permanent asserts on urban expansion in different periods were discussed.
