A MODEL OF HOUSEHOLD DEMAND FOR ACTIVITY PARTICIPATION AND MOBILITY
With modern multivariate statistical methods and activity-diary (time-use) data sets, it is possible to model houesehold mobility decisions as being derived from decisions to participate in activities at various locations. This paper shows how this can be accomplished by specifying activity participation by activity type and location as endogenous variables, with a simple locational distinction of "at home" versus "out of home". The activity participation variables are then combined in a model system of simultaneous equations with variables that measure mobility demand: travel times by mode, household vehicle ownership and household vehicle utilization. Results are shown from a model estimated using two-day activity diary data for male and female household heads and associated accessibility data collected in the Portland, Oregon, U.S.A. Metropolitan Area in 1994.
