Title: Residential Trajectories in Lisbon Metropolitan Area: An Exploratory Approach
Authors: Marques Pereira, Sandra

Keywords: Lisbon Metropolitan Area
Residential trajectories
Issue Date: Jun-2014
Abstract: This paper analyses the residential trajectories of Lisbon Metropolitan Area inhabitants who were born between 1945-1975. The analysis was carried out using a longitudinal approach that, in contrast to the traditional transversal ones, emphasizes the diachronic aspects by reconstituting the residential biography of each respondent in the survey (N=1500), which was implemented during the second half of 2011. The research underlies three essential dimensions of residential trajectories: 1) location and geographical direction; 2) the housing model that is directly related to the morphology of the territories; 3) the housing tenure, which is of profound interest in the current Portuguese context because of the economic crisis that is diminishing the propensity for homeownership. Due to the plethora of data, this paper will focus on the first dimension with two purposes: 1) to identify the dominant trajectories (e.g.: countryside-periphery, Lisbon centre-periphery, periphery-periphery, etc.); 2) to discuss the various sociological profiles of the protagonists in each of those dominant trajectories, in order to understand the multiple combinations and intersections of variables (social class, generation, household type), which characterize and differentiate each other.
