Measuring and typifying mobility using motility

In this article, we will measure individuals’ and groups’ aptitude for movement and consider them relative to their living environment by developing a typology of motility. This will help highlight both the range and variety of skills for being mobile, and the social and spatial inequalities associated with them. We will address this question based on the panel data from the Job Mobilities and Family Lives research study (hereafter referred to as JobMob) conducted in four European countries (Germany, France, Spain and Switzerland) in 2007 and 2011. This article focuses on forms of work-related mobility and thus concerns working-age people.
