Residential Mobility in Moscow During the Transition

Document date: September 01, 1995
Released online: September 01, 1995
This paper explores aspects of the evolving pattern of residential mobility in Moscow for the period 1992-1994. A three-year longitudinal survey of about 2,200 dwelling units served as a data source. It tested the hypothesis that the burst in mobility rates between 1992 and 1993 was not a one-time phenomenon; examines the composition of movers; tests the hypothesis that mobility is concentrated among "market movers"; explores the change in housing conditions achieved by relocating; and estimates simple models of the probability of moving on a market basis or of obtaining housing through waiting list procedures.
