Relationship between Distance and Opportunities

Relationship between Distance and Opportunities

Accessibility is a determining factor behind the availability of opportunities (jobs, customers, suppliers, etc.) and if they can be realized or not. In a high accessibility setting, an individual will have access to a wider array of goods and services, employment as well as additional social interactions. The same applies to a business with potentially more customers and suppliers. Keeping accessibility constant, density is also a factor impacting on opportunities. In a high density setting, a distance will confer more opportunities than the same distance on a low density setting.
