RESIDENTIAL MOBILITY IN THE SEOUL METROPOLITAN REGION : WHO, WHERE AND WHY?
Jung Hoon Han AND Scott Baum
This article presents data on residential mobility for the Seoul Metropolitan Region. It addresses two questions-why do households move and who moves and finds that like research undertaken in other cities that a wide range of factors impact on the residential mobility process. Key outcomes include the impact of housing dissatisfaction on residential mobility and the impact that life cycle, period of residence and housing and dwelling characteristics have on discerning between movers and non-movers.
