Abstract: The understanding of the spatial location of jobs and people has a long tradition in the economic literature because it can induce changes in the social and economic conditions between regions within countries. Most studies analyzing which comes first, jobs or people, focus on variations in jobs and people instead of worker and people flows. Generally, only stock measures are available so that they are used as proxy to estimate flows. In this paper, we aim to augment our knowledge of the spatial dynamics of jobs and population by distinguishing inflows and outflows. We mobilize several available data on residential mobility and labor movements between 2012 and 2013 in France. Our results show that population and job adjustments are not simultaneous, and a rise in job exits does not have an immediate impact on population exits.
