Microsimulations have become more important in the field of travel demand generation over the last years. However, most of the simulations developed focus on daily-life or short-term travel demand, although the share of the overall traffic volume caused by journeys not undertaken in daily life is increasing. The main goal of this research is the development of a new microsimulation, which is able to generate long-distance travel demand for a long period of time, say 6 or 12 months. An important step in this development is the implementation of a population generator. This paper describes in detail the population of the underlying microsimulation. It shows the problems facing a synthesis of a population for a long-term simulation and presents diverse solutions including an advice for the population generation of Long-Term C-TAP. The presented solutions involve the concept of reproducing (joint) distributions as well as the idea of using statistical models. Show more
