Title: Minority Transportation Expenditures Allocation Model (MITRAM): User documentation for the personal computer spreadsheet version

Abstract

The Minority Transportation Expenditures Allocation Model (MITRAM) can project various transportation-related attributes of minority and majority populations. Individual components of the model were developed using time-series data and then validated independently using cross-sectional data. The model projects vehicle ownership, vehicle-miles of travel, workers, new car and on-road fleet fuel economy, amount and share of household income spent on gasoline, and household expenditures on public transit and taxis. These attributes are projected for whites, blacks, and both. This report describes how various components of MITRAM work and how to use MITRAM on an Apple Macintosh or an IBM PC. Two spreadsheet software packages are available: Excel for the Macintosh, and Lotus 1-2-3 for the IBM PC. The Excel version produces a set of graphs showing historical and projected values of the transportation attributes, while the LOTUS version presents only the numbers in the spreadsheets. 27 figs., 1 tab.
