  1. Overall probability of mobility (α) was derived from the CDRs. The indicated models are: impedance model (IM), gravity model (GM), and radiation model (RM). Results are presented for the two spatial definitions. ∆ AIC corresponds to the variation from the optimal AIC value derived from the CDRs
