THE USEFULNESS OF TWO MULTIREGIONAL ECONOMIC MODELS IN EVALUATING TRANSPORTATION POLICIES: A COMPARISON OF THE MULTIREGIONAL INPUT-OUTPUT MODEL DEVELOPED BY KAREN R. POLENSKE AND THE MULTIREGIONAL MULTI-INDUSTRY FORECASTING MODEL DEVELOPED BY CURTIS C. HARRIS, JR

The report describes and compares two large-scale economic forecasting models--the Multiregional Input-Output Model (MRIO) developed by Karen Polenske, and the Multi-regional Multi-industry Forecasting Model (MRMI) developed by Curtis Harris--to examine their usefulness to transportation planning at the national, State, and local levels. The models use fundamentally different methods of economic forecasting, and thus have different appropriate applications in transportation planning.
