ISSUES AND LEVELS OF EFFORT

This paper lists the objectives and issues of the Workshop on Surveillance and Socioeconomic Forecasting. Particular emphasis was given to the frequency, level of detail, and geographic systems of data and forecast. The objectives are: identification of the transportation and land use problems faced by small and medium-sized communities; evaluation of the types of data that should be collected to identify these problems; identification of the frequency and costs of collecting these data; identification and evaluation of secondary-source data and geographic systems used in its forecasting process needed for both short-range and long-range planning. The issues are: how much of the data collected in the past has been useful?; what types of data should be collected now for problem identification and short-range and long-range planning?; are any of the data-collection procedures used in long-range systems planning useful for corridor or project planning purposes?; should any data be collected to satisfy the needs of local elected officials that is not needed for technical planning purposes?; how can models be simplified to require less-detailed and less-expensive data collection?; and what staff levels and type of staff are needed to ensure proper data collection, analysis, and forecasting?
