POLICY ANALYSIS USING SAMPLE ENUMERATION - AN APPLICATION TO CAR OWNERSHIP FORECASTING

The paper describes applications of the sample enumeration procedure for transportation policy analysis. The procedure is illustrated by reference to models developed for the prediction of driving licence and car ownership. These models are based on data collected in the Netherlands in 1977. The development and form of the models is described briefly. Applications of the procedure to two specific scenarios is described in detail. These involve projection of the car ownership effects of a general economic decline, and the prediction of car ownership effects of a shift of tax from car ownership to petrol. The latter evaluation is extended by a projection of travel demand effects. The policy analyses illustrate clearly the effectiveness of the sample enumeration technique in application. Using this procedure policies can be specified and evaluated in a few hours, thus making the use of modelling realistic for rapid policy evaluations. (Author/TRRL) seminar see IRRD no 272766.
