The Furness method is one of the most popular methods used in the trip generation process where one wants to estimate the number of trips likely to be made per unit time, between pair of zones in a residential area. This paper is directed to the numerical analysis of the Furness method. We discuss the rate of convergence of the method which after the question of convergence itself is the most important aspect of the method. This disucssion leads us to suggest a complementary method which, used with the original method, would guarantee the accuracy of the results. This complementary method is an adaptation of Newton's method. /Author/TRRL/
