Using Disaggregated Socioeconomic Data in Air Passenger Demand Studies

The objectives of this research are to: (1) evaluate the feasibility and potential benefit of using disaggregated socioeconomic data (e.g., income distributions, age cohorts, ethnicity, trip purpose) to improve local air passenger demand studies (e.g., airport planning, forecasting, marketing, air service development, passenger leakage) and (2) develop a guidebook to assist practitioners in incorporating disaggregated socioeconomic data for the aforementioned studies.
