SOCIAL IMPACT ASSESSMENT: A SOURCEBOOK FOR HIGHWAY PLANNERS, VOLUME VII--THE JUDGMENTAL IMPACT MATRIX APPROACH: A FRAMEWORK FOR EVALUATING THE SOCIAL AND ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACTS OF TRANSPORTATION ALTERNATIVES

The seven volume sourcebook is designed to provide the planner techniques to assist in the assessment of the social and environmental impact of new and improved highways. Included are relatively unobtrusive techniques for generating social data and validating data obtained from surveys or other direct methods of public inquiry. This volume describes a structured approach for linking components of alternative designs or locations to first order impacts. The technique is described in sufficient detail to permit use by planners with varying amounts of training and experience. /FHWA/
