Age and the Journey to Work.
Clemente, Frank; Summers, Gene F.
An Hypothesis suggesting an inverse association between age and distance traveled to work was tested by correlation analysis. The results indicated no support for the expected linear relationship between age and distance commuted. This finding runs counter to the well-documented inverse relationship between age and other dimensions of geographic mobility. Several possible reasons for the failure of age to emerge as a predictor of distance traveled to work are suggested and briefly discussed. (Author)
