WHY CAMPAIGNS FOR LOCAL TRANSPORTATION FUNDING INITIATIVES SUCCEED OR FAIL : AN ANALYSIS OF FOUR COMMUNITIES AND NATIONAL DATA

This report uses statistical analysis of community-level characteristics and qualitatively focused case studies to explore what determines the success of local transportation-related tax measures. The report contains both a statistical analysis of local election data from California (1980-1998) and the nation (1990-1998), as well as four in-depth case studies of funding initiative campaigns. The case studies were used to identify strategic measures that advocates of transportation tax packages could use to bolster their odds for success
