Note

Both jobseekers and vacancies are spatially distributed. A jobseeker has accessibility to vacancies and a vacancy has accessibility to applicants, and these accessibility measures vary across locations. Left alone, an individual most often prefers to search for a job close to the present home address. The unemployment benefit rules state rather strict mobility requirements. Using these rules changes the accessibility measures at all places. In other words, monitoring job search affects both the search intensity and the level of competition. This directly affects where a jobseeker finds a job. It is shown that an increased mobility follows from a strict usage of the rules. The increased mobility of individuals implies additional transfer of knowledge and ideas.
