This paper aims at pointing out the adverse repercussions on the Greek travel industry resulting from the contradicting policy measures taken by the various governments due to the lack of a consistent strategy on tourism. The analysis takes as an example the reduction of the VAT from 11% down to % for hotel accommodation which has been followed by an .

TRB’s second Strategic Highway Research Program (SHRP 2) Report S2-CRR Activity-Based Travel Demand Models: A Primer explores ways to inform policymakers’ decisions about developing and using activity-based travel demand models to better understand how people plan and schedule their daily travel. The document is composed of two parts. TASHA is a sophisticated activity-based microsimulation model of activity scheduling and mode choice that represents household interactions of vehicle allocation, ridesharing to joint activities, and drop-off/pick-up of household members. The empirical analysis and model results indicate that there exists an asymmetry in vehicle transactions.

In our framework, we use copulas to provide a flexible link between a discrete choice model of activity type choice, a hazard-based model for activity duration, and a log-linear model of productivity. Our model is readily amenable to estimation, which we demonstrate using data from the UK Study of Productive Use of Rail Travel-time.   Unfortunately, this book can't be printed from the OpenBook.

In: Meyers R. (eds) Encyclopedia of. Abstract. We present concepts and methods to cope with the enormous data needs of urban microsimulations. In the first part of the article, we adopt a process-oriented perspective on relocation, activity participation, and transportation and then refine this perspective in the microsimulation by: 2.

The activity-based approach takes as the basic unit of analysis the travel/activity pattern, defined as the revealed Microsimulation and other approaches hold In.

For two decades, there has been growing attention on the use of microsimulation in this area, including the models UrbanSim in the U.S. (Waddell, ) and ILUTE (integrated land use. Rapid urbanization, climate change and energy security warrant a more detailed understanding of how cities today consume energy.

Agent-based, integrated microsimulation models of urban systems provide an excellent platform to accomplish this task, as they can capture both the short- and long-term decisions of firms and households which directly affect urban energy by: In this analysis, microsimulation is used to simulate activities, travel and mode choice.
