The accessibility intended as a measure of connectivity between place of residence and place of work through the transport system, determines the configuration of the Local Labour Markets (LLM). The aim of this paper is the analysis of the location accessibility and the mobility conditions of LLM in Tenerife. Making use of the information about the daily mobility of the working population available in the 2001 Census of population and housings, the municipalities of LLM with a level of self-containment greater than 80% are classified. The indexes of accessibility with competition (floating catchment area method) for employments corresponding to three limits of time (20, 30 and 40 minutes) are estimated by means of a GIS, using the entities of population as origins and the municipalities as destinations.
