Abstract

The last five Housing surveys (1984-2002) confirm the role of the factors that usually explain residential mobility (age, income, level of education, family structure and housing characteristics). They can also be used to refine certain analyses and correct certain preconceived ideas. Among the household and housing characteristics, the importance of age and occupational standing are corroborated. Family events prove to be more decisive factors for residential mobility than employment considerations. Employment only plays the lead role in cases of long-distance mobility, alongside qualifications, age, income and household size. Short-distance mobility remains in the majority even though it is posting a relative downturn. The causes of mobility have changed little overall in the last twenty years.
