The seminar topics will include:
Right-to-Work: Gateway or Barrier to Economic Growth
REMI will present the economic implications of right-to-work policies. Using Indiana’s recent legislation as a test case, we will discuss a methodology for modeling changes in wage structure, government services, union dues, and household/business relocations using our PI+ model.
Assessing the Economic Impact of the Keystone XL Pipeline
Using the REMI PI+ model, we will discuss a methodology behind an economic analysis of the Keystone XL pipeline. The proposed pipeline would impact seven states and two Canadian provinces, while indirectly affecting the price of oil in the United States.
REMI TranSight: Transportation and the Economy
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.
REMI Metro-PI: Sub-County Analysis and Forecasting
REMI’s most recent release, Metro-PI, provides users with a comprehensive tool for analyzing regional demography down to the TAZ level to better forecast development, transportation and environmental needs. By providing highly detailed forecasts of population, labor force, and households, Metro-PI allows users to visualize their region’s future and plan accordingly.
REMI Models and Forecasting: Overview of PI+ model
This is an inclusive overview of the REMI family of models. This includes a description of PI+, our standard model, its methodology, its 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.
