Custo de acessibilidade entre residência e trabalho: um enfoque das características individuais, familiares e locais


  • Admir Antonio Betarelli Junior



The main aim of this paper is to analyze the probability of busy individuals to have a greater or lesser cost of accessibility in the displacement of their residence to the workplace. The global analysis is based on individual, family and local characteristics. To do so, we assign to the cost of accessibility as the average time from home to work and this variable is estimated by maximum likelihood with the Generalized Ordered Logit Model (MLOG). The main results show that: (a) households without children promote a negative effect on the probability of the cost of accessibility; (b) increasing age decreases the chances of individuals have a higher cost of accessibility; and (c) when individuals receive transport help, your chances increases to spend up to 30 minutes of residence to the workplace.
