I would think that a potential employer would want to know whether you live near the job location, but I suppose it would depend on the job. My previous employer only hired local candidates because most of the jobs required the employee to be on-call 24/7. They would explicitly state this in each job posting, but they would still receive many resumes from people who lived two hours or more away and had no interest in relocating. When they occasionally received a resume without an address, it was discarded because they didn't have the time to contact the candidate to find out whether they were local or not.

I still include my address on my resume and will continue to do so, even if it does make me seem outdated.
