This regional location model is an integral semi-dynamic model. The most important components are: a demographic submodel, a labor market submodel and a household allocation submodel. In the overall model the housing market is a central point. With the demographic model the new households, for every period, are calculated from natural growth and migration and together with the potentially-mobile households allocated to the (sub) zones of the sub areas. The main assumption in the model is that different types of household, differing in income and family-characteristics, will react differently to the mainly physical characteristics of the sub areas. The parameters of the equations however are not estimated on the basis of the real distribution of the households over geographical space. The distribution should be regarded as a consequence of both the preferences of the households and the constraints inherent in their situation and obth should be modelled separately. In this model the relative attractiveness of the sub areas is calculated as the result of the values that households attach to the physical characteristics of the sub-areas. The values are measured in a sociological survey. With the relative attractiveness the demand for different kinds of housing in the subareas is calculated and set against the supply. In a separate model the settling of households is calculated. The model is so formulated that it can be directly used to simulate the consequences of decisions of the local authorities. /TRRL/
