A STATE-WIDE TRAFFIC MODEL FOR THE STATE OF GEORGIA- EXPERIMENTAL MODEL DEVELOPMENT

THE RESULTS OF EXPERIMENTAL MODELS DEVELOPED AS PART OF A CONTINUING EFFORT TO DEVELOP A STATEWIDE TRANSPORTATION PLANNING MODEL FOR THE STATE OF GEORGIA ARE PRESENTED. REGRESSION EQUATIONS WERE DEVELOPED WITH A CORRELATION COEFFICIENT OF .86 OR BETTER. A SIGNIFICANT DISCRIMINANT FUNCTION WAS OBTAINED TO MORE RATIONALLY DIFFERENTIATE BETWEEN URBAN AND RURAL COUNTIES. THE GRAVITY AND FRATAR MODELS WERE SUCCESSFULLY DEVELOPED. IT WAS RECOMMENDED THAT STATEWIDE ORIGIN-DESTINATION SURVEYS BE CONDUCTED; MEANWHILE, THE BASE YEAR TRIP TABLE SHOULD BE SYNTHESIZED BY USING THE RESULTS OF TRIP GENERATION AND DISCRIMINATORY ANALYSIS. IT WAS ALSO RECOMMENDED THAT CONSIDERATION SHOULD BE GIVEN TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF A MORE DETAILED STATEWIDE PLANNING PROCEDURE BASED ON CENSUS COUNTY DIVISIONS AND THE HIGHWAY FUNCTIONAL CLASSIFICATION SYSTEM. /FHWA/
