Abstract : This study presents some empirical evidence on the manner in which transportation costs influence the household's choice of a residential location. It also describes a residential location model which considers the problem of residential location. This model makes it easier to understand the empirical tests offered in this paper. The central hypothesis, suggested by this and similar models, is that households substitute journey-to-work expenditures for site expenditures. This substitution depends primarily on household preferences for low-density as opposed to high-density residential services.
