The Changing Geography of Spatial Mismatch
Using data from Snagajob, we analyze spatial mismatch for low-wage workers in Detroit, Michigan, and Seattle, Washington. In Detroit, more low-wage job seekers than jobs exist in the central city, while the suburbs have a larger number of low-wage jobs than workers seeking those jobs. In Seattle, there is an overabundance of low-wage job seekers in the suburbs and an overconcentration of low-wage jobs in the central city.
