Abstract

Examines the relationship between accessibility and the choice of residence and employment locations. Reviews the literature on this topic noting that many focus on the residential decision, often assuming that the workplace is predetermined. Describes an integrated land-use transport model with two sub-models: the residential choice sub-model allocates households to the housing stock using a trade-off approach but including a stepped approach in which higher status groups are allocated first, and lower status groups are then allocated within the remaining stock; the job- choice sub-model is similar. Then considers improvements in the model and concludes with a brief description of a method designed to calibrate the model.-A.Hay
