Intra-urban Mobility, Migration, and Tenure Choice
AbstractThis analysis develops a model in which, for the first time, households' mobility decisions are separated into intra-urban movements and migrations. These two mobility decisions and the households' tenure (own/rent) choice are estimated as part of a multinomial logit framework and are found to be jointly determined. The literature suggests that the intra-urban mobility and migration decisions are motivated by quite different factors. Consequently, by separating the two choices for the purpose of estimation, each equation can be specified more correctly. In addition, variables which affect migration can be shown to have an impact on intra-urban mobility and tenure choice which would otherwise be ignored. Copyright 1991 by MIT Press.
