The individual agent makes a difference in segregation simulation

Resum: Urban social segregation modeling from the bottom up attempts at understanding the processes which take place when residents look for a new home. This micro-scale perspective thus requires implementing actual individual agents instead of socially unified communities with similar or identical behavior. Complementary, meso- and macro-scale determinants such as housing markets, estate agencies, urban planning institutions, and societal life-style preferences must be incorporated in order to comprehensively and adequately simulate residential mobility. The paper presents an attempt to simulate urban socio-spatial segregation for the city of Salzburg, Austria, by consistently taking the individual household scale into account. We first apply the beneficial features of a Schelling-style simulation model by also taking macro-social regularities into account. This is followed by a description of an adapted segregation model that includes the mentioned requirements. The paper concludes with an extensive presentation and discussion of the model results achieved so far.
