FORECASTING THE EFFECTS OF CHANGES IN THE WORK-PLACE LOCATIONS ON RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT AND TRIP GENERATION

In this paper, we consider the problem of forecasting the development of residential sections of an urban area in the near future (5 to 10 years hence). A special entropy model is developed which gives the most probable residential development for given changes in work-place. A simple algorithm is devised which efficiently solves the resulting non-linear mathematical program. This analysis is applied to a sample city. The results provide estimates of the changes in residential locations as well as imputed trip origin and destination costs. Trip distribution is carried out implicity. /Author/TRRL/
