Private versus Public Service Location Behaviour: The Case of Rural Dentists
AbstractThe purpose of this paper is to explore the interface between private and public service location behavior. An empirical test investigates the following hypothesis: when competition is restricted to locational behavior, independent private firms select their locations so as to maximize accessibility to their clients. The case of dentists in a rural environment supports this hypothesis by showing a significant similarity between the observed location pattern and simulated p-median configurations.
