RANK CLASSIFICATION: A PROCEDURE FOR DETERMINING FUTURE TRIP ENDS

THIS PAPER DESCRIBES A PROCEDURE FOR FORECASTING FUTURE TRIP PRODUCTIONS AND ATTRACTIONS BY TRAFFIC ANALYSIS ZONES. TRAFFIC ANALYSIS ZONES HAVING CHARACTERISTICS RELATED TO TRIP PRODUCTION AND TRIP ATTRACTION WERE GROUPED TOGETHER. A TRIP GENERATION RATE WAS DETERMINED FROM BASE YEAR DATA FOR EACH GROUPING OF ZONES. THE GENERATION RATE FOR A GROUP HAVING LIKE CHARACTERISTICS WAS ASSUMED TO HOLD TRUE FOR THE FORECAST YEAR. HOWEVER, CHANGES IN THE FORECAST OF VARIABLES RELATED TO TRIP PRODUCTION AND TRIP ATTRACTION CAN SHIFT A PARTICULAR ZONE FROM ITS ORIGINAL GROUPING OR CELL TO ANOTHER HIGHER OR LOWER TRIP GENERATION RATE GROUP. /AUTHOR/
