Description :
This article examines ethnic differences in activity spaces through a study of out-of-home nonemployment activities with mobile phone data in in Estonia and abroad. The biggest differences between the two population groups occur in Estonia outside the respondents’ home city of Tallinn, where the Russian-speaking minority was found to visit fewer districts than Estonians. With respect to international travel, the Russian-speaking minority visits fewer countries and are more likely to visit former Soviet Union countries than Estonians. Overall, our results show that ethnic differences have less effect on the everyday activity space and a greater influence on the choices made regarding long-distance travel.
