Development of employment-location models

This chapter describes a description of the ways in which analysis of employment location was developed. It explores a linked model structure for population and population–serving employment, as this was used in the early versions of the integrated model package. The chapter explains a presentation of two procedures developed for estimating the intraurban location of basic employment, and which were used in early work with the integrated model package. It presents a presentation of a more recently developed model which handles both basic and population–serving employment types. The chapter discusses of the calibrations of the new employment model and of the equations necessary in calibration. Thus population and population–serving employment were accounted for, but it remained to define some process for producing forecasts of the intraurban location of basic employment. The calibrations were done for two types of nonbasic employment, retail employment and service employment.
