Research output: Contribution to JournalArticleAcademic


This paper introduces a model which includes residential, job moving, and commuting behavior when labor and housing markets are characterized by market imperfections (imperfect information and moving costs). We examine the consequences of these market imperfections on commuting behavior. An empirical analysis of commuting behavior indicates that workers commute less if they receive more job offers. © 1997 Academic Press.
