Functional labor markets in Belgium: Evolution over time and intersectoral comparison
This paper applies the Bond and Coombes (2007) algorithm to construct Travel-to-Work Areas for Belgium. We study how these functional labor markets evolved between 1981 and 2001 and find that the number of distinct regional labor markets decreased over time. For 2007, sector-specic Travel-to-Work Areas are constructed. The results reveal that the size of a sectors labor market increases with its degree of technological intensity.
