Abstract

ROMANI J., SURINACH J. and ARTIS M. (2003) Are commuting and residential mobility decisions simultaneous?: the case of Catalonia, Spain, Reg. Studies 37 , 813-826. In this paper we study commuting and moving decisions taken by workers in Catalonia (Spain) and the evolution of these decisions in the 1986-1996 period. Using a microdata sample from the 1991 Spanish Population Census, we estimate a simultaneous, discrete choice model of commuting and moving, which indirectly addresses decisions involving home and job location. The econometric framework is a simultaneous, binary probit model with a commute equation and a move equation. ROMANI J., SURINACH J. et ARTIS M. (2003) La question des migrations quotidiennes, va-t-elle de pair avec la question de la mobilite?: etude de cas de la Catalogne, en Espagne, Reg. Studies 37 , 813-826. Cet article cherche a examiner la question des migrations quotidiennes et celle de la mobilite pour ce qui est des travailleurs de la Catalogne, en Espagne, et l'evolution de ces questions de 1986 a 1996. A partir des microdonnees provenant du recensement de la population espagnole de 1991, on estime un modele discret, simultane, fonde sur la notion de choix, qui modelise les migrations quotidiennes et la mobilite et qui aborde de facon indirecte des questions telles la localisation du lieu de residence et du lieu de travail. Le cadre econometrique c'est un modele probit binaire simultane dont une equation qui traite des migrations quotidiennes et une autre qui traite de la mobilite. ROMANI J., SURINACH J. und ARTIS M. (2003) Werden Pendler-und Umzugsentscheidungen gleichzeitig gefallt? Der Fall Kataloniens, Spaniens, Reg. Studies 37 , 813-826. In diesem Aufsatz werden Pendel-und Umzugsentscheidungen untersucht, welche von Arbeitern in Katalonien, Spanien, getroffen wurden, sowie die Entwichlung dieser Entscheidungen im Zeitraum 1986-96. Mit Hilfe einer Stichprobe von Mikrodaten der spanischen Volkszahlung des Jahres 1991 wird ein simultanes, getrenntes Auswahlmodell der Pendler und Umzugler berechnet, das indirekt auch Entscheidungen angeht, die Standort von Wohnhaus und Arbeitsplatz miteinbeziehen. Der okonomische Rahmen ist ein simultanes, binares Probitmodell mit einer Pendelgleichung und einer Umzugsgleichung.
