Une analyse de la géographie des services résidentiels et touristiques à l'échelle des bassins de vie français
The objective of this paper is to contribute to the characterization of "residential" activities that correspond to services to the population, be it permanent or temporary, in a given locality. The spatial distribution of employment in these population-based activities is analyzed at the geographic scale of functional economic areas. The estimation of tourism-related employment uses the minimum requirements technique to assess the specific impact of tourism attractiveness on the population-based services. To explain the geography of population-based employment, explanatory factors relate to local market potential and the ability of territories to attract or retain consumers. Though, generally speaking, the distribution of population-based employment follows the urban hierarchy, one should also take account of sectoral characteristics that set non-market services somewhat apart, as well as geographic specificities in periurban areas and tourism resorts.
