In this paper authors point out that the coefficients obtained from using Tobit-here called "beta" coefficients - provide more information than is commonly realized. In particular, authors show thatExpand
The identification of urban employment subcenters
Abstract The purpose of this paper is to propose empirical criteria for the identification of urban employment subcenters. It is suggested that gross employment density (employment divided by totalExpand
The effect of anticipated transportation improvement on residential land values
