Abstract

Empirical results based on individual-level data from Japan were studied to determine the effect of social capital on the willingness to leave one’s residential area. It was found that social capital accumulated through one’s own experience in a residential area is not the only factor that reduces willingness to leave. Social capital inherited from one’s parents also negatively influences the desire to move.

Keywords: social capital, residential mobility
