SOCIAL DIFFERENTIATION AS A KEY TO ASSESSING THE SOCIAL EFFECTS OF TRANSPORT RELATED CHANGES

Social impact of (1) a change in accessibility to specific services and/or (2) disruption or community severance due to transport and related changes, will vary with individual and household characteristics: command of resources, class background, ethnic background, stage in life cycle, lifestyle orientation, etc. Census data on such characteristics are manipulated by multi-variate analysis to explore areal differentiation of Melbourne at CCD level and to yield frameworks for (1) initial assessment of impact of projects and (2) monitoring of potential "trouble spots". Allied with other techniques of social analysis, these frameworks can assist policy and project evaluation, and the planning of impact amelioration. /Author/
