METHOD FOR UNDERSTANDING AND PREDICTING DESTINATION CHOICES

The principal goal of the research reported here is to develop a proto-type model of destination choice from the basis of individual-choice hypotheses and the application of attitudinal enquiry. The secondary goal is to determine new kinds of measures of site attractiveness for destination-choice models, substituting for conventional measures of size, such as employment or floor area. The next task of the research was to develop a data base appropriate for testing the hypotheses of the research. A variety of models were constructed from the data and subjected to a number of tests.
