This examines key issues in local job accessibility and availability measurement in the Paris region municipalities. To do so, an original model where job availability is fully estimated according to a set of individual characteristics, job competition is fully modelled on the local labour market and frontier effects are controlled for. It shows that the model-induced empirical differences are spatially differentiated , and that failing to fully estimate job availability may lead to overestimation of the job accessibility levels of underprivileged municipalities
