Une analyse de la géographie des services résidentiels et touristiques à l'échelle des bassins de vie français

Abstract : The objective of this paper is to contribute to the characterization of "residential" activities that correspond to services to the population, be it permanent or temporary, in a given locality. The spatial distribution of employment in these population-based activities is analyzed at the geographic scale of functional economic areas. The estimation of tourism-related employment uses the minimum requirements technique to assess the specific impact of tourism attractiveness on the population-based services. To explain the geography of population-based employment, explanatory factors relate to local market potential and the ability of territories to attract or retain consumers. Though, generally speaking, the distribution of population-based employment follows the urban hierarchy, one should also take account of sectoral characteristics that set non-market services somewhat apart, as well as geographic specificities in periurban areas and tourism resorts.
