REMI presentations will include:
REMI Models and Forecasting: Introduction to PI+
This is an inclusive introduction to the REMI family of models. This includes a description of REMI PI+, our standard model, its methodology, use, and the data included in its analytical capabilities and forecast. This will provide attendees with background for the rest of the day on modeling functioning and internal results.
Transportation: Transportation Planning and Financing in TranSight
REMI TranSight, our dedicated model for analysis of transportation-related policy, brings together regional modeling with forecasting and travel demand models (TDMs). Here, we outline the methodology of the model, its integration with TDMs, and how it performs benefit-cost analysis (BCA) and economic impact analysis (EIA) on projects and financing scenarios for MPOs and state DOTs across the United States.
Dynamic Fiscal Scoring in Tax-PI
REMI will discuss dynamic fiscal scoring at the state level. We will demonstrate how fiscal scoring can be part of a complete evaluation of tax policy and will include the dynamic effects of both fiscal and budgetary changes.
At REMI, our goal is to improve public policy. The information presented at this seminar will enable you to make more detailed and efficient forecasts about the economic effects of policy changes. There is no charge to attend this event; however, space is limited and advanced registration is required.
Registration is closed for this event.
