The Spatial Patterns Affecting Home to Work Distances of Two-Worker Households
Round-trips between home and work represent, for the majority of people, most of their daily commuting time; also, setting home and work places involves more constraints for two- than for one-worker households. This research aims at providing some of the information missing in the location decisions of two-worker households in order to improve land use and transportation policies. In order to explain home to work distances for two-worker households, three logarithmic regression models are built: the first including workers in one- and two-worker households, the second with workers in two-worker households only, and the third one estimating the sum of distances in two-worker households. This last model includes spatial interrelationship factors, that are the ratio of the minimal over the maximal accessibility to jobs by car within 15 minutes between the two workplaces, the ratio of the minimal over the maximal Euclidean home to work distance, and the angle formed at home locat...
