dc.description.abstract
Commuting has been found to be one of the least enjoyable activities in an individual’s day. As commuting is a consequence of a choice made by each individual, the choice of home and work location, the question arises how the disutility of commuting is compensated. Classical urban location theory suggests a compensation in the housing or the labour market, which has been confirmed by previous research. While these observations provide part of the explanation, individuals’ personal networks are ignored in most studies. We use data from a social network survey that was conducted in the year 2017 in the canton of Zürich, Switzerland, to investigate proximity to social contacts as a factor in residential location choice. We find evidence of a trade-off between proximity to individuals’ contacts and commuting time. The notion that the disutility of commuting is not compensated (which was suggested by previous research) might, therefore, be a consequence of ignoring the effect of individuals’ social contacts and their personal networks.
