SYNTHESE VAN AUTOBEZITS- EN GEBRUIKSMODELLEN: EEN WENSELIJKE ONTWIKKELING?

The paper deals with a number of types of models used for predictions of car ownership and car use. These models often differ with regard to the expected effects of policy measures. A major part of these differences can be explained by looking at the specific (policy) aim for which a model has been developed. Following this aim the model has also been given a specific structure as well as a set of hypotheses and behavioral relations. The separate model predictions, by explaining different parts of the same phenomenon, should be considered to be complementary instead of contrary to each other. An integration of models would be a next logical step. The best method in order to combine the strong aspects of the individual models without losing their unique character seems to be an expert system. A first step would be the introduction of a 'weighed' elasticity for calculating the effects of combined policy measures. (Author/TRRL)
