INSTÄLLT! All things considered? A cognitively plausible model of neighborhood choice


SEMINARIET ÄR TILLS VIDARE INSTÄLLT. Elizabeth Bruch, University of Michigan (OBS: detta seminarium hålls på en måndag)

Although there have been efforts in recent years to study the linkages between individual-level residential mobility patterns and macro-level changes in spatial inequality and segregation, such studies use implausible behavioral models of how people decide whether, when and where to move. This hampers both our understanding of the individual process of residential mobility and neighborhood attainment, as well as the inferences possible from simulations linking individual mobility with macro-level outcomes. In this talk, I present results from a study that: (1) develops and estimates cognitively plausible models of residential choice that allows for a decision-maker with incomplete information, heuristic (simplified) strategies for both search and screening, and a multi-stage decision process; and (2) uses agent-based models to explore the aggregate consequences of these "cognitively plausible" choice models for patterns of residential segregation
