EFFECTS OF FEDERAL TRANSPORTATION FUNDING POLICIES AND STRUCTURES. APPENDIX C. STATISTICAL ANALYSIS OF THE IMPACT OF FEDERAL HIGHWAY AID ON STATE ALLOCATIVE DECISIONS

The analysis is concerned with the effects of the funding structures of federal aid highway programs on state allocative decisions. The focus is on changes which have occurred over the last 20 years in federal aid funding mechanisms and the impact on state highway programs of these changes. The work is part of a broader study for the Office of the Secretary, U.S. Department of Transportation (P.J. Barbato, monitor) that addresses the effects of funding structures across the highway, airport, and transit modes. The study used regression analysis on a highway data base which covers the time period 1957-1975 and the 48 contiguous states. In addition to analyzing the data base at an aggregate level, particular subsets of the data base, such as certain groups of states and certain time periods, were also examined.
