MIXED GENERALIZED LINEAR MODEL FOR ESTIMATING HOUSEHOLD TRIP PRODUCTION

An innovative modeling framework to estimate household trip rates using 1995 Nationwide Personal Transportation Survey data is presented. A generalized linear model with a mixture of negative binomial probability distribution functions was developed on the basis of characteristics observed from the empirical distribution of household daily trips. This model provides a more flexible framework and a better model specification for analyzing household-specific trip production behavior. Compared with traditional least squares-based regression models, the parameter estimates from the proposed model are more efficient. Although the mean accuracies from the two modeling approaches are comparable, the mixed generalized linear model is more robust in identifying outliers due to its unsymmetric prediction bounds derived from more correct model specification.
