Residential preference: a perceptual view of Melbourne

An understanding of the land use/ transport interaction, although essential to a rational evaluation of urban and regional policy, is frequently complicated by the introduction of sophisticated mathematical techniques. In an effort to make this interaction more visible to the decision maker, this paper places two of the more advanced techniques, multinomial logit analysis and mental maps, in a common framework of analysis and presentation. In doing so it combines the strength of a rigorous theoretical background with the simplicity of a visual presentation. The paper outlines the theory and development of the technique and illustrates its use with reference to a case study of the residential location preferences of residents of inner Melbourne suburbs.
