RESIDENTIAL AND JOB LOCATION AND THE JOURNEY-TO-WORK: A REVIEW AND THEORETICAL PERSPECTIVE

To a great extent, the combined choice of thousands of individuals as to where to live and where to work determine the physical and social character of the urban area and of the various communities therein. This document discusses the major landmarks in the economic and sociological literature concerned with residential choice, job location choice, and the relation to these of the distance/cost of the journey-to-work. The paper specifies two potentially complementary models concerning these choices--a residential location model, and a job location model. /TRRL/
