INCOME FACTOR IN THE JOURNEY-TO-WORK: ATTITUDES AND BEHAVIOR

THIS PAPER DEALS WITH TWO DIVERGENT POSITIONS WHICH HAVE ARISEN REGARDING THE JOURNEY-TO-WORK AS A DETERMINANT OF RESIDENTIAL LOCATION. THE DATA REPORTED HERE WERE DERIVED FROM A SURVEY CONDUCTED IN CHARLESTON, WEST VIRGINIA DURING 1967. THERE IS LITTLE EVIDENCE IN ANY OF THESE DATA SETS IN SUPPORT OF THE CONTENTION THAT DIFFERENCES IN JOURNEY-TO-WORK DISTANCES MAY BE ASCRIBED TO VARIATIONS IN INCOME LEVEL. ONLY A VERY SMALL PROPORTION OF THE INDIVIDUALS SURVEYED REPORTED THAT WORK ACCESS HAD OPERATED AS A CONSTRAINT IN THEIR CHOICE OF A PLACE OF RESIDENCE.
