Relationship between Distance and Opportunities
Accessibility is a determining factor behind the availability of
opportunities and thus 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 in a high accessibility setting.
Keeping accessibility constant, density is also a factor impacting on
opportunities. In a high density setting, a small distance will confer
more opportunities than the same distance on a low density setting.
