Abstract

Aspects of destination choice which concern relationships between destinations are explored in the context of a production-constrained gravity model. It is shown that, if competition exists between destinations or, alternatively, if agglomeration effects are present, the gravity model is misspecified and estimated distance-decay parameters obtained from the model are related to spatial structure.
