REGIONAL ECONOMIC EFFECTS OF ALTERNATIVE HIGHWAY SYSTEMS

A multiregional, multi-industry forecasting model that accounts for all of the influences of national highway systems on regional economies is proposed. The book described the forecasting model and the statistical parameters obtained from fitting the equations to the data. The model is also designed to evaluate planned hypothetical alternative highway systems. Procedures are presented which are used with the model to derive the transportation varibles influencing the location of industry. Energy requirements and pollution emissions are tied to the economic results. The appendix contains summary projections through 1990 for 173 OBE Areas (Office of Business Economics Economic Areas of the United States) under five alternative highway systems.
