Summary

Van Ommeren presents an analysis of commuting behaviour from an integrated labour and housing market perspective. He proposes and analyses a theoretical search model (including job and residential relocation and commuting behaviour) with a comparison between single-wage and two-earner households. The book also includes several empirical chapters exploring the relationship between commuting and relocation behaviour.
