Abstract:This paper explores the determinants of population and jobs at a local level. We consider that employment and population are simultaneously determined and assume that, for population and employees, location determinants vary between professional groups rather than between sectors. We used two-stage least-squares to estimate residential and employment location and tested the model using recent data for municipalities in Catalonia (from 1991 to 2001). Our results show that location patterns depend on professional groups of residents and employees. We also found that, although population and jobs are simultaneously determined, the location of population is more important for the location of jobs than vice versa.
