ECONOMIC AND SOCIAL FACTORS AFFECTING HIGHWAY USE

THIS WAS A STUDY OF HOUSEHOLD GENERATION OF PRIVATE PASSENGER-CAR TRIPS, CARRIED OUT IN FOUR NONURBAN INTERSTATE HIGHWAY INTERCHANGE AREAS. THE RESEARCH IDENTIFIED SOME 14 SOCIAL AND ECONOMIC CHARACTERISTICS OF HOUSEHOLDS AND RELATED THESE VARIABLES TO THE HOUSEHOLD NEED FOR AND ABILITY TO USE HIGHWAY SERVICE. THE REPORT DID NOT INDICATE THE RELATIVE IMPORTANCE OF THE VARIABLES. NO RELIABLE PREDICTIVE EQUATION OF HIGHWAY USE BY INDIVIDUAL HOUSEHOLDS WAS OBTAINED. /BPR/
