Technologies for Migration and Commuting Analysis: Spatial Interaction Data Applications
John Stillwell, Oliver Duke-Williams, Adam Dennett.
Internal migration serves as one of the key contributing factors to population change involving not only change in the numbers of people, but also a change in composition and structure of local populations.
Technologies for Migration and Population Analysis: Spatial Interaction Data Applications...
Interaction Data: Definitions, Concepts and Sources
John Stillwell, Adam Dennett, Oliver Duke-Williams.
This initial chapter has two aims. Firstly, it seeks to clarify definitional and conceptual issues relating to the key interaction phenomena, migration and commuting, on which the authors concentrate in this book and for which they strive to obtain information to enhance their understanding of the...
Access to Census Interaction Data
Adam Dennett, John Stillwell, Oliver Duke-Williams.
This chapter is concerned with how users gain access to census interaction data. The authors outline a brief history of electronic access to interaction data sources and identify a number of issues and problems which led to the development of the Web-based Interface to Census Interaction Data (WICID)....
Interaction Data: Confidentiality and Disclosure
As we saw in Chapter 1, interaction data sets have been derived from a number of sources, including censuses, other surveys and from a range of administrative sources. These typically have the characteristic that the data form large, sparsely populated matrices. Where the matrices do have non-zero...
Analysing Interaction Data
John Stillwell, Kirk Harland.
Large and complex interaction data sets present researchers with analytical challenges and this chapter attempts to identify and illustrate a number of ways to analyse origin-destination flows. Given the impossible task of providing a comprehensive review in such a limited space, certain analytical...
Temporal and Spatial Consistency
Oliver Duke-Williams, John Stillwell.
One of the major problems challenging time series research based on stock and flow data is the inconsistency that occurs over time due to changes in variable definition, data classification and spatial boundary configuration. The census of population is a prime example of a source whose data are...
New Migrant Databank Concept and Development
Peter Boden, Phil Rees.
Few parts of the UK remain unaffected by the surge in migration from central and eastern Europe that has been evident since the expansion of the European Union in 2004.
