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.
