A COMPARISON OF SOME CALIBRATION TECHNIQUES FOR DOUBLY CONSTRAINED MODELS WITH AN EXPONENTIAL COST FUNCTION

This paper compares the practical considerations in implementing different techniques for calibrating doubly constrained gravity type models with an exponential cost function. The comparisons are carried out under the headings of speed, accuracy, computer storage required and ease of implementation. Three techniques, due to Hyman, Evans and Hathaway, respectively, are initially considered. Various modifications and improvements to these methods are suggested and the most efficient versions of each are compared. A modified form of the method due to Hyman is found to be the fastest and most accurate for most practical situations and is recommended for general use. (A) /TRRL/
