Abstract

This paper contains preliminary analysis of the data collected during the pilot survey of a Central London company for the Location and Commuting Project. Self-completion questionnaires were distributed to all members of the staff to gather information about their residential and employment histories, together with facts about their characteristics, journey to work trips and the extent to which financial assistance was available to them to help with the cost of housing and travel.

A description of the characteristics of the respondents and their journey to work patterns is followed by analysis of residential and workplace mobility.

Age is found to be an important determinant of both residential and employment mobility with housing tenure and occupational classifications influencing home and job mobility respectively. Analysis of the journey to work trips for recent home movers suggests that the economic constraints of the journey to work may play an important role in locational decisions.
