EFFECTS OF JOURNEY-TO-WORK COMMUTING ON THE DEVELOPMENT OF LOW-INCOME AREAS

The study is based on the relationship between commuting and the economic development of underdeveloped rural areas. An extensive survey was made of the literature on journey-to-work commuting, regional migration, and policies for regional economic development. Models to explain intercounty commuting were formulated and statistically estimated and these results are reported. Several empirical studies of commuting behavior in specific areas were undertaken in the states of Georgia and South Carolina. Insight was gained into many aspects of the journey-to-work commuting process and its relationship to area development. Findings, policy recommendations, and directions for future research are summarized.
