Although recent labor market studies have markedly increased our knowledge of the patterns of worker mobility, the determinants of movement of various types remain a relatively unexplored area of investigation. The study reported on in this article explores the relationship of various personal and social variables to the decisions made by a group of workers when they were faced with a choice between following their jobs to another locality or risking the uncertainties of finding a new job in the local labor market area. The findings contribute substantially to needed understanding of the influence of race and age on mobility.
