Abstract: In this paper we present some results of a research project to develop and estimate a micro-econometric model of residential choice. The model is applied to a sample of Italian chief towns of district. The choice is assumed to depend on household characteristics, income, structural and environmental characteristics of the dwelling and of the town, local taxes and local expenditure on services and public goods. The model is used for simulating the effects of alternative systems of fiscal decentralisation upon public finance and household behaviour and welfare.
