To investigate this, we apply discrete-choice models to longitudinal data from the Panel Study of Income Dynamics linked to neighborhood-level data from multiple population censuses to compare the neighborhood choices of mixed-race couples with children to those of monoracial couples with children, while...

Analyses of out-mobility reveal that parents and young adult children living near each other as well as low-income adult children living near parents are especially deterred from moving. Discrete-choice models of neighborhood...

... intentions. The issue of selectivity is compounded by the issue of endogeneity. As is widely acknowledged, endogeneity often arises in discrete-choice models, precluding a consistent estimation of the models' parameters. Here, because both the decision whether to migrate and the decision whether...

Types of movement are defined in terms of these units, the most important distinction being that between local mobility and migration. Here we examine explicitly the implications of the choice of the migration-defining boundary in the U.S. over...
