Article
Sub‐national economic policies increasingly use labor market areas (LMAs) rather than administrative areas for analysis and implementation. How a set of LMAs was defined influences the results of such analyses, and so accurate policy delivery needs appropriately defined LMAs. Multinational bodies need comparable LMA definitions in many countries, c...
Article
Full-text available
Labour market areas (LMAs) are a type of functional areas that provides the appropriate framework for spatially-explicit analyses of the labour market to guide policymaking in this field. This resource presents a data base with the most recent definition of LMAs for Spain using a state-of-the-art methodology. All defined LMAs are highly self-contai...
Article
Labour market areas (LMAs) are a type of functional region (FR) defined on commuting flows and used in many countries to serve as the territorial reference for regional studies and policy making at local levels. Existing methods rely on manual adjustments of the results to ensure high quality, making them difficult to be monitored, hard to apply to...
Article
Functional regions capturing local socioeconomic dynamics are a framework for territorial statistics and policymaking. The usefulness of such statistics and policies depends on the adequateness of the regions used in the analysis. Several authors have adopted the modularity quality function to drive their regionalisation methods. This function, ori...
Article
Full-text available
Labour market areas and other functional regions (FRs) are increasingly used within research and policy, but how FRs are best defined is an unresolved issue. This is important because the policy impacts, or the research results, will differ depending on the specific FR boundaries used. As a result of this sensitivity (termed the Modifiable Areal Un...

Content sharing link: http://rdcu.be/x4g3 http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/pirs.12199/abstract The methods used to define functional regions for public statistics and policy purposes need to establish several parameter values. This is typically achieved using expert knowledge based on qualitative judgements and lengthy consultations with...
Article
Full-text available
Administrative areas are arbitrarily designed and do not necessarily reflect the geographical patterns of socio-economic and labour market activity. Labour market areas (LMAs) are required to analyse spatial labour market activity and provide a framework to guide spatially-explicit employment policy development. This resource describes a data sourc...

Labour market areas (LMAs) are argued to represent a more appropriate policy framework than administrative units for the analysis of spatial labour market a...

Article
Full-text available
Due to confidentiality considerations, the microdata available from the 2011 Spanish Census have been codified at a provincial (NUTS 3) level except when the municipal (LAU 2) population exceeds 20,000 inhabitants (a requirement that is met by less than 5% of all municipalities). For the remainder of the municipalities within a given province, info...

Article
The delineation of functional economic areas, or market areas, is a problem of high practical relevance, since the delineation of functional sets such as economic areas in the US, Travel-to-Work Areas in the United Kingdom, and their counterparts in other OECD countries are the basis of many statistical operations and policy making decisions at loc...

Conference Paper
Full-text available
Given a territory composed of basic geographical units, the delineation of local labour market areas (LLMAs) can be seen as a problem in which those units are grouped subject to multiple constraints. In previous research, standard genetic algorithms were not able to find valid solutions, and a specific evolutionary algorithm was developed. The incl...
Conference Paper
This paper proposes a parallel evolutionary algorithm to tackle the fully interconnected network design problem (FINDP), a specific application of hub location to network design. The FINDP has been recently proposed as an NP-hard combinatorial optimization problem formed by two smaller sub-problems: first, given the nodes which form the network, cl...

Article
Full-text available
This paper presents a new approach to the delineation of local labor markets based on evolutionary computation. The aim of the exercise is the division of a given territory into functional regions based on travel-to-work flows. Such regions are defined so that a high degree of inter-regional separation and of intra-regional integration in both case...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
This paper proposes a set of specific crossover and mutation operators for the delineation of functional regions through evolutionary computation. We consider a problem of dividing a given territory into local labor market areas based on spatial interaction data. Such areas are defined so that a high degree of inter-regional separation and intra-re...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
This paper presents a new approach to the delineation of local labour markets based on evolutionary computation. The main objective is the regionalisation of a given territory into functional regions based on commuting flows. According to the relevant literature, such regions are defined so that (a) their boundaries are rarely crossed in daily jour...

Project
The project, whose principal researchers are José M. Casado-Díaz and Hipólito Simón, is currently funded by the Ministry of Science, Innovation and Universities (Agencia Estatal de Investigación, IEI) and ERDF (European Union), Grant Number: CSO2017‐86474‐R. It was previously supported by the Spanish Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness (Grant CSO2014-55780-C3-2-P, National Plan of R&D&I), 2015-2018. The project focuses on (a) the delineation and analysis of labour market areas based on information on aggregate commuting flows, including the proposal of new regionalisation algorithms and assessment tools and (b) the study of commuting patterns based on statistical microdata.
