Registered author(s):

    La relación que se establece entre el nivel de densidad residencial y la accesibilidad al lugar de empleo en el interior de una área urbana parece ser más compleja que la supuesta en el Modelo de Ciudad Monocéntrica. Las estimaciones de funciones de densidad residencial más simples, sustentadas en un modelo teórico que suponía una concentración total del empleo en el distrito central y que utilizaban como única medida de accesibilidad la distancia al centro, han dado paso a estimaciones más sofisticadas donde la distancia al centro no es la única medida de accesibilidad utilizada, la función de densidad es más flexible y la densidad no sólo se explica en función de la accesibilidad.
