PROCEDURES FOR MULTI-STATE MULTI-MODE ANALYSIS: FIRST YEAR'S RESEARCH
The report presents an analytical procedure designed to measure quantitatively the interactions between economic development potential and transportation service improvements. The transportation services of interest include both existing and developmental modes and intermodal services. The analysis focuses on the Multi-State Corridor extending from Brunswick, Georgia to Kansas City. Significant results of the first year's research are: (1) Establishing variable-sized network zones; (2) identifying state highways, rail lines, and navigable inland waterways; (3) defining 53 industry/commodity groups, along with production coefficients for labor, energy, capital, and materials; (4) preparing a 111 zone, 53 commodity flow table for the U.S.; (5) calibration of mode split equations for seven industry/commodity groups; (6) developing and calibrating market share equations; (7) testing the overall procedure in four zones in Northern Mississippi. No developmental conclusions can be drawn from the limited test.
