Residential mobility in France and in Paris since 1945: the history of a cohort

Popul. 1990;2:187-212.


Using data from two retrospective surveys carried out in France in 1981 and 1986, the authors "reconstitute the residential history of a cohort and...measure the differences [in migration histories] between Paris and the whole of France.... We shall attempt to reconstruct the residential histories of these individuals, by analysing firstly the stage when they left their parents to set up their first independent home, and secondly mobility throughout their life course, paying particular attention to the extension of home ownership in this cohort."
