SIMULATION OF THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN CERTAIN SOCIAL FACTORS AND TRANSPORTATION IN A LOW INCOME AREA

The intent of this paper is to model a typical urban ghetto in terms of three variables: education, health and income, and to simulate the behavior of these variables over a ten-year period. A fourth variable, the effect of accessibility generated by an improved transit system, is then introduced in order to determine the effect of this component upon system performance. From this analysis it is hoped that a number of insights will emerge concerning the development of urban ghettos and the effect (or lack of effect) of transportation in helping this development.
