Quantitative Models of Cities

Project description

An innovative study of urban economics

Between and within countries, there are significant divergences in economic activity. Within countries, there are differences between cities and rural areas. The arrival of data with a high level of spatial resolution for cities has encouraged the study of the economics of cities. The EU-funded COMMUTE project will advance our understanding of the economics of cities with four innovations in order to assess the benefits of improvements in urban transport infrastructure and the effects of planning interventions on the development and welfare of cities. The project will combine quantitative urban models with extraordinarily detailed register data covering every person in Denmark and develop a dynamic version of the current static models.
