The impact of residential environment reputation on residential environment choices

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review

Abstract

Using a Danish household survey data from 2011, this paper investigates whether the choice of living in rural or urban residential environments is linked to the perceived reputation of such environments. Results from multiple ordered logit regressions show that the perceived status attached to living in different residential environments is strongly associated with current residential environment. For example, the probability of living in a large city was found to increase by 0.7 % along a 19-scale variable measuring the perceived degree of status attached to living in urban versus rural residential areas. Among other findings, the results suggest that causality mostly flows from status perceptions to residential environment choices.
