Residential segregation and local labor markets within the Bordeaux metropolitan area : which range for the spatial mismatch hypothesis? (In French)
This article aims at providing a test of the spatial mismatch hypothesis on the Bordeaux metropolitan area. Starting with a theoretical survey of the complex links between residential segregation and local labor markets, we then propose a framework allowing for a better understanding of the impact of physical distance on spatial mismatch. The results confirm the existence of somewhat different effects of spatial friction depending on the distance, but also underline the limited effect of spatial mismatch on local unemployment rates. Factors such as the socio-economic composition of population and mobility access have a more important explanatory power.
