Making the Web-Science Operational for Interregional Commuting Analysis: Evidence from Greece

Abstract: Abstract This article proposes a Network Theoretical model for the interregional commuting analysis, estimating the volume of commuters that operate in a commuting network, based on the conceptual framework of the term “Web,” as provided by the Web-Science. Initially, the Web-Science’s conceptual framework is being generalized to operate for any kind of network and, afterwards, the proposed model is constructed, under the rationale that each conceptual component in the generalized Network Theoretical framework should be represented by different variables. The applicability of the proposed model is evaluated on real data of the Greek interregional commuting system, formulated by the capital cities of the Greek non-insular prefectures (|V(G)| = 39) and by their respective interconnection axes (|E(G)| = 72). The results of the analysis show respect to the categories of the proposed conceptual framework, where the overall empirical analysis of the Greek interregional commuting network elected the population variable as the most determinative factor for the commuting phenomenon.
