A DRAM/EMPAL APPLICATION: PROJECTING EMPLOYMENT RELATED HOUSING DEMAND. IN: TRANSPORTATION PLANNING METHODS APPLICATIONS. PROCEEDINGS, THIRD NATIONAL CONFERENCE, DALLAS, TEXAS, APRIL 22-26, 1991

As part of a broader analysis conducted for the City of Los Angeles, DRAM/EMPAL projection models were used to illuminate connections between the location of projected employment and projected housing demand. The broader analysis examined the merits and feasibility of City assessments of fees to business developers, predicted on the "nexus" between such development and low income housing demand. Project principals supplied a twenty year forecast of employment growth for the City's various planning areas. DRAM/EMPAL projection runs over a detailed 772-zone system produced the conditional probability-of-residence matrices critical to translating the employment growth into spatially distributed low income housing demand. In the process a number of practical problems, typical of work involving a mix of models and expertises, were identified and resolved.
