THE DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION LONG-RANGE FORECAST MODEL

This report describes the development and structure of a long-range forecast model constructed for the Department of Transportation (DOT) by Jack Faucett Associates. Another report to DOT (DOT-OST-P10-80-2) presents forecasts made using this model. The Department of Transportation Long-Range Forecast Model consists of an input-output model (the INFORUM model of the University of Maryland) and a transportation submodel, with detail for 31 commercial and private transportation modes. The submodel calculates output levels for the transportation modes consistent with the economic projections and industrial detail from the main model. Passenger transportation forecasts are exogenous and are specified as inputs to the transportation submodel. The transportation submodel also calculates input requirements for each transportation mode, including detailed inputs of fuels.
