TRANSPORTATION PATTERNS OF PRODUCTION AND CONSUMPTION-1967 CENSUS OF TRANSPORTATION-SIC 20-39

This work presents a macroscopic picture of production and consumption of manufactured commodities (SIC 20-39) from a transportation point of view. The picture that emerges is in qualitative agreement with intuitive understandings of the spatial character of the U.S economy in 1967, the year of collection of the census of transportation data on which this study is based. (The work is preliminary and requires detailed refinement to remove source data problems). Forecasts of potential changes in the spatial patterns are made. Research issues in energy commodity movement that impact the transportation planning of rail investments and deepwater ports and pipelines are outlined. Finally, research in four directions to expand the approach presented herein is described and related to the long range planning problem for freight movement in the U.S.
