FORECASTING RAPID EXCAVATION DEMANDS IN THE URBAN SECTOR

The paper describes efforts made since the 1972 Rapid Excavation Conference in Chicago to generate more thoughtful and more robust estimates of urban sector demands, and to apply what has been learned to the most difficult category of predictions: those for urban mass transit systems. A modest sample survey has been undertaken of demands by major category in three key american Urban areas: New York, Los angels, and Minneapolis-St. Paul. This is the only empirical effort going on to establish comprehensive benchmarks for present and future activity in these major metropolitan areas. From the data collected it should be possible to estimate propensities to spend in other cities for the important urban utilities.
