Regional Housing and Labour Markets takes a close look at the history and the current achievements of housing and labour market research. It demonstrates that, despite the large number of diverse contributions in this area, at least six main fields might be identified, for which regional science may claim to have provided an important contribution to economic theory and analysis; Housing Market Models: Structure and Operation of Housing Markets; Housing Consumption and Demand; Housing Choice and Residential Mobility; Job Search Theory; Labour Supply and Demand; Spatial Labour Market Adjustment.

The articles in this collection span over 30 years including the work of many leading experts in the fields of housing market research and labour market research.
‘This is a very substantial volume, with a selection of significant papers . . . for those libraries with current subscriptions to the relevant journals but no back runs from the 1980s it would . . . be a way of plugging a significant part of that gap.’
