Microscopic Analysis of Travel Behavior Change

This project examines person and household behavioral histories over a long period (1989 to 2003) offering a unique opportunity to differentiate individual variation in behavior due to age, period, and cohort membership as well as other person-specific changes (e.g., entry to and exit from the labor force) and household changes (e.g,, entry or exist of household members). Second, it offers a new approach of studying within-household dynamics and the impact events of within-household change have on individual as well as household behavior using latent variables. Third, the substantive analysis of travel behavior offers a comprehensive analysis of human and social (household) behavior in time and space. The most important analytical method in this project is a set of latent variable structural equations models longitudinal data to build trajectories of behavioral change.
