Title Commuter flows
Alternate Title Commuter Balance [26]
Publication Date 2008-04-30
Abstract Comparing incoming with outgoing commuter flows enables a more detailed analysis of the role of Alpine municipalities in terms of labour supply, a major functionality for regional development. Jobs concentrate in certain municipalities, which play the role of employment hubs and form the cores of Labour Market Regions made up of sets of municipalities for which they provide jobs. But commuting can develop as a complex system with reverse flows from centres and flows between non-central municipalities, which can be secondary poles of employment. Outside Labour Market Regions, commuter balance can also be positive in municipalities which are local service centres, since they have more jobs than one would expect from their resident population.
