EVALUATING STATE IMPLEMENTATION OF FEDERAL HIGHWAY POLICY: METHODS AND FINDINGS. MAIN REPORT: VOLUME I

This report should prove of interest to two distinct audiences, namely, those concerned with analysis methods such as technology assessors, policy analysts, and social scientists, and those administrators and scholars dealing with Federal or state transportation policy, particularly with respect to highways. The report is organized into three sections to assist the reader's selection of material. The first section presents the conceptual backdrop for this study and describes operationalization of this into a research model and study design. The second section on methodology reflects the major thrust of the study, to refine and evaluate methods for technology policy assessment. It can be passed over by the reader concerned primarily with transportation policy. The third section presents findings pertinent to various transportation policy matters. It will be of less interest to the reader concerned with assessment methods.
