Housing ownership, social housing and unemployment: an econometric analysis of the Paris area

Abstract : In order to explain the spatial inequalities in unemployment-to-work transitions in the Paris area, we use an exhaustive administrative data set from the French National Employment Agency (Agence Nationale pour l'Emploi). We find strong local disparities between communes, even when we control for a large number of socio-economic variables. In order to explain this geography, we investigate the effects of the urban structure on unemployment-towork transitions. Our results suggest an extension of Oswald's findings (1999): the unemployment-to-work transitions are lower in the areas that have either a higher than average proportion of housing ownership or a higher proportion of social housing. Furthermore, the former effect appears only when the latter is controlled for.
