Individual transition from unemployment to employment is conditioned by various elements. If some of them concern directly the individual characteristics of workers, other ones implicate indeed their environment when searching for a job. The residential location, in town centre or in suburbs and high travel distances to each labour market areas or public intermediates for example are factors which can influence the exit rate of unemployment. Dealing with such an issue is the purpose of the paper. In a first stage we present a survey of the literature that treat about the introduction of spatial constraint in job search model. In a second stage, using the survey « Trajectoires des Demandeurs d'Emplois » from the French Ministry of Employment, we proposed non-parametric estimation of duration model and probit estimations to analyse the influence of the choice of spatial horizon during job search on the probability of finding a job.
