USING TRANSPORT HOME INTERVIEW DATA TO MODEL THE DISTRIBUTION OF HOUSEHOLDS

Considerable effort and money has been directed at collecting, editing and correcting data to study transport systems. These data have primarily been used to model the movement of people throughout the transport system. Little effort has been directed at using these data to study the influence transport systems have on the distribution of households in urban areas. However, since these data are collected at the household level it would appear that there is potential for using these data to develop such models. This paper presents an exploratory study of the usefulness of the data to model the distribution of households in Melbourne. It starts by determining those variables collected for the 1964 Melbourne transport study that may influence the distribution of households. These variables are then used to develop a logit model of the distribution of households in Melbourne. The development of such models using other transport study data is also discussed.
