Labour market spillovers and urban spatial organisation
Project Number: 475
Project Leader: Joel Franklin
Start Date: 2016-09-01
End Date: 2017-06-30
Description:1. Taking into account labour market spillover effects, how do the benefits of cost, travel time, and comfort improvements transmit to different beneficiaries in the short-term, when residents have not yet had time to respond with changes in housing decisions, and the long-term, when they, for example, could relocate and choose to live in a larger or smaller home? 2. How do labour market spillover effects shape the spatial organisation of urban areas, taking into account differentiation between different sectors in the labour market? Does this, for example, lead to polycentric or concentric-ring structures, where different centres or different rings are dominated by different labour market sectors?
