ELIASSON K., LINDGREN U. and WESTERLUND O. (2003) Geographical labour mobility: migration or commuting?, Reg.

Studies 37, 827–837. In this paper, we examine how individual labour market status and spatial variations in employment

opportunities influence interregional job search behaviour and mobility decisions in Sweden. The econometric analysis is based

on 290,000 individual observations and refers to the years 1994–95. The empirical results show that the probability of

interregional labour mobility unexpectedly decreases with the accessibility to employment opportunities in neighbouring

regions. As expected, the findings reveal that accessibility to job openings in surrounding regions significantly increases the

likelihood of choosing commuting as the mobility mode.Moreover, the empirical findings indicate that individual unemployment

experience increases the likelihood of mobility as well as migration.
