This paper deals with the residential and tripmaking behavior of Detroit workers. Residential behavior here refers to the consumption of an interrelated bundle of housing and transportation goods and services. Tripmaking, in this context, is limited to the weekday journey to and from work. The statistical analysis presented here is designed to explore the interrelationships in consumption between housing and transportation. It is hoped the analysis will provide useful information regarding the decisions to locate households in certain areas, and will indicate what implications this information may have for urban transportation and land-use planning.
