Municipal Residency Requirements and the Local Economy.
Eisinger, Peter K.
Social Science Quarterly, v64 n1 p85-96 Mar 1983
Residency laws for public employees in municipalities are an attempt to combat unemployment and encourage the spending of salaries in the local economy. A survey of 74 cities reveals that the adoption of residency laws is associated with unemployment, fiscal hardship, population loss, frostbelt location, and mayor-council government. (Author/KC)
