This information is raw material on which, with suitable data, estimates of volume and type incoming goods and services to homes necessary to support the activities of the home can be based. Possible Uses The ‘backwards-following’ logic of the analysis outlined above suggests that, from the demand models, we can know something about the locations at which futurescenario wor kers and businessmen, shoppers and personal- business travellers, and of course homes, will require goods and services. These locations will differ between frequent, quite frequent, middling-rare and rare needs, each of which will have a typical profile of service implications.
A more detailed model in the family might then be used to obtain more information about the performance of the most promising alternatives. Assessments based on the fast model, therefore, would be considered as first order approximations in discussions on transport or related policies. When a promising policy has been ide ntified using the fast model, it will often be necessary to conduct further detailed planning and research in which full account can be taken of the specific circumstances and characteristics of the problem.
In this French project, when the RP data were combined with the SP data (from both experiments) and a joint model was estimated, it appeared to be possible to obtain correctly signed coefficients for transport time and cost. In transport research, the use of SP for obtaining relative valuations (trade-off ratios) is nowadays widely accepted, but for forecasting it is necessary to use RP data as well (to base the forecasts on the real choice context and the variation that this contains). Given the problems encountered with the RP with regards to the time and cost variables, it was recommended to pay particular attention to the collection of data on time and cost in the new French national shippers survey under preparation.
