Employment and residential mobility in deprived neighborhoods – A Danish case
We aim to investigate the association between entering employment and residential mobility in different types of neighborhoods. In particular, we test whether residents in deprived neighborhoods who move from unemployment to employment to a higher degree leave the neighborhood the following years compared to residents in non- deprived neighborhoods.
Based on administrative register data, the analysis uses a unique longitudinal dataset among individuals entering neighborhoods between 1986- 2012 allowing to investigate changes in their characteristics and moving patterns. We use ordinary least square regression with an interaction term between moving from unemployment to employment and neighborhood to estimate the probability of employment and residential mobility in different types of neighborhoods.
We find that residents in deprived neighborhoods who have received employment have a higher probability to leave the neighborhood within the following two years compared to residents receiving employment in non-deprived neighborhoods. Results indicate that employment contributes to selective migration in deprived neighborhoods.
The target group is urban planners and decision makers with an interest in population migration dynamics and geosocial patterns.
