Abstract: Our study is concerned with the estimation of the causal effect of household victimization on household mobility. More precisely, we analyze both processes (victimization and mobility) by taking into account potential endogeneity of household victimization, but also potential endogeneity of household initial geographical localization. Data that we use come from surveys on household living conditions (enquêtes permanentes sur les conditions de vie des ménages) collected by Insee (Paris) between 1997 and 2002. These data are matched with local environment variables that come from the 1999 French Census and from the 1996 dads (déclarations annuelles de données sociales) data set on wages. Our results show that medium- and high-income households are more likely to move after a burglary or a car theft (i.e. they are more sensitive to property crime), while low-income households are more likely to move when at least one of their members has been assaulted (i.e. they are more sensitive to violent crime).
