Abstract

This study develops an agent-based model to simulate social and economic influences on neighborhood choice, in Danville, Illinois. A pattern-oriented approach is employed to examine the role of social ties in shaping intraurban household mobility. Based on 1,000 simulation experiments, a regression of homeowner migration error (the difference between simulated and observed migration) relative to the parameter settings revealed components of social network choice such as income, race, and probability of local ties to be significant in matching observed migration patterns. A nonlinear effect of simulated social networks on household mobility and thus migration error was exhibited in this study
