The life course and residential mobility in British housing markets

Auteurs :
CLARK, W.A.V.
HUANG, Y.

Description :
The AA. confirm the applicability of the general residential mobility model and confirm the value both of pooled cross-sectional and of true longitudinal models of residential change. Age, tenure, and room stress are found to be significant predictors of moving. In addition, marital-status change and birth of a child play important roles in moving within housing markets. Variables that mesure the desire to move and neighborhood satisfaction also play a role in predicting local moves. The results offer support for the view that residential mobility is a demographically driven process which also reflects the connection with neighborhood contexts.
