Application of Socioeconomic Model System for Activity-Based Modeling
MetadataShow full item record
This paper presents results from the application of a comprehensive socio-economic and demographic model system performed in conjunction with the development of a continuous time activity-based microsimulation model of travel demand for the Southern California Association of Governments. The socio-economic model system includes two major components. The first is a synthetic population generator that is capable of synthesizing a representative population for the entire region while controlling for both household and person level marginal distributions. The second is an econometric microsimulator that models various socio-economic and demographic attributes for each person in the synthetic population with a view to develop a rich set of input data for the activity-based microsimulation model system. The results show that the socio-economic model system is capable of replicating known distributions of demographic attributes in the population and can be easily scaled for implementation in large regions such as the Southern California area that includes a population of more than 18 million people in its model boundaries.
