ACCESSIBILITY TO EMPLOYMENT AND THE JOURNEY TO WORK IN METROPOLITAN ADELAIDE

This paper examines measures of job accessibility and work trip behaviour in Adelaide. It compares patterns of accessibility to employment a Adelaide with those recently described in Sydney (ref: paper by J. Black titled Changing Accessibility to Employment) using the journey to work data available from the 1971 census. It then attempts to assess the importance of workers of variations in accessibility to job opportunities, using the results of a household survey carried out in Adelaide in 1975. /TRRL/
