Intraurban residential relocation choices for students: an empircal inquiry
AbstractStudent residential relocation decisions are not well understood. Knowledge of the factors considered in such decisions is important in the planning of the residential accommodation requirements of tertiary institutions. In this paper we apply a probablistic choice model of the logit form to identify the factors important to a student's choice between residential movement and nonmovement during the period of study. A sample of students in Sydney is used to estimate the model, and a separate sample drawn to assess its predictive ability. The model is estimated on student-specific data, and tested for the functional form of elements of the indirect utility-function. The empirical results support the 'accessibility to academic institution' hypothesis, and identify some neglected explanatory variables -- especially access to finance, and support from parents.
