HOME-BASED TRIP GENERATIONS ESTIMATED BY A STATIFIED HOUSEHOLD LINEAR REGRESSION MODEL

THE ARTICLE PRESENTS A TRIP-GENERATION MODEL WHICH APPEARS TO BE WELL SUITED TO PROVIDE HOME-BASED ALL-MODE-PURPOSE TRIP-GENERATION ESTIMATES. IN FACT, THE MODEL RESULTS COMPARE FAVOURABLY WITH THOSE OBTAINED BY CATEGORY ANALYSIS MODELS. THE REGRESSION APPROACH IS NOT NEW, BUT WHAT IS FAIRLY NOVEL IS THE CALIBRATION OF THIS PARTICULAR MODEL USING HOUSEHOLD DATA AND IN SO DOING USING THE HOUSEHOLD AS AN INDIVIDUAL OBSERVATION. THE APPLICATION OF THE MODEL IS THEN MADE AT THE ZONAL LEVE. THE DATA USED IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE MODEL WERE COLLECTED PRINCIPALLY TO ENABLE CATEGORY ANALYSIS MODELS TO BE CALIBRATED AND USED FOR PREDICTIVE PURPOSES IN TWO SMALL TOWNS. LIMITED COMPARISON OF THE RESULTS OBTAINED BY THE REGRESSION MODEL WITH THOSE GIVEN BY CATEGORY ANALYSIS MODELS ARE QUOTED. (A)
