Document title

The life course and residential mobility in British housing markets

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



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
