Abstract. Using a system of structural equations, this paper empirically examines the relationship of residential neighborhood type to travel behavior, incorporating attitudinal, lifestyle, and demographic variables. Data on these variables were collected from residents of five neighborhoods in the San Francisco Bay Area in 1993 (final N=515), including “traditional” and “suburban” as well as mixtures of those two extremes. A conceptual model of the interrelationships among the key variables of… 

1 EXAMINING THE IMPACTS OF RESIDENTIAL SELF-SELECTION ON TRAVEL BEHAVIOR : METHODOLOGIES AND EMPIRICAL FINDINGS

Numerous studies have found that suburban residents drive more and walk less than residents in traditional neighborhoods. What is less well understood is the extent to which the observed patterns of

Examining The Impacts of Residential Self-Selection on Travel Behavior: Methodologies and Empirical Findings

TLDR
This report reviews and evaluates alternative approaches to attitudinal self-selection in suburban residents and recommends usage of longitudinal structural equations modeling with control groups, a design which is strong with respect to all causality requisites.

Do changes in neighborhood characteristics lead to changes in travel behavior? A structural equations modeling approach

Suburban sprawl has been widely criticized for its contribution to auto dependence. Numerous studies have found that residents in suburban neighborhoods drive more and walk less than their

Abstract From a review of the literature on residential self-selection and spatial multicollinearity, this paper identifies the relationships that travel behavior has with three factors: land use,

Do changes in the residential location lead to changes in travel attitudes? A structural equation modeling approach

Numerous studies have found that travel attitudes might not only affect travel behavior, but also the residential location choice as people might choose a residential location based on their travel

Built environment, travel behavior, and residential self-selection: a study based on panel data from Beijing, China

The influence of the built environment on travel behavior has been the subject of considerable research attention in recent decades. Scholars have debated the role of residential self-selection in

Spatial self-selection in land-use–travel behavior interactions: accounting simultaneously for attitudes and socioeconomic characteristics

Spatial self-selection can be ascribed to two main factors: socioeconomic characteristics or attitudinal aspects towards travel and location choices. Several studies have investigated the influence
