An analysis of the latent demand for transportation in Parlier, California.

This study analyzes the latent demand for transporta- tion in the Parlier, California, study area.1 It tests the hypothesis that specific community groups in Parlier—the elderly, low-income and Mexican-American households, and the housewives—have a latent demand for transportation which is not being satisfied because of inadequacies in the existing transport systems (unmet latent demand). The study explores the theory of transportation demand and the latent demand, and it defines the problem of unmet latent demand as it affects the nation's elderly, poor, low-income minorities, handicapped, young, and housewives. It then applies latent demand analytical methods to the specific study of latent demand in Parlier.
