NOTES ON THE ELASTICITY OF DEMAND FOR FREIGHT TRANSPORTATION

This study is of the various forms of elasticity analyses and empirical estimates available. Price and modal-choice are investigated. This is followed by discussion of quality considerations and then empirical estimating methods are examined. It is concluded that even the sophisticated transport demand estimates may have little relation to reality and knowledge is woefully incomplete, even where careful studies have been made.
