METHODOLOGY FOR DEVELOPING ACTIVITY DISTRIBUTION MODELS BY LINEAR REGRESSION ANALYSIS

A PROPOSED MATHEMATICAL FRAMEWORK FOR DEVELOPING URBAN ACTIVITIES DISTRIBUTION MODELS IS DESCRIBED. THE MODELS DISTRIBUTE FORECAST REGIONAL TOTALS OF SOCIO-ECONOMIC VARIABLES TO SMALL ZONES. THE DISTRIBUTION IS CARRIED OUT AS A FUNCTION OF FUTURE PUBLIC POLICIES RELATING TO HIGHWAY AND RAPID TRANSIT IMPROVEMENTS, PUBLIC OPEN SPACE, ETC.
