This systematic literature review covers quantitative ex-post analyses of social and economic spatial effects due to changes in transport supply, published within the last decade. Ex-post analyses observe what happened and allow us to understand fundamental principles, to learn for the future, and to use correct values in ex-ante studies, appraisals etc. The focus is on techniques that deal with three tasks: quantification, isolation and causality of such effects. Circa 40 publications by academics, organizations and official authorities are assessed for their technique (e.g. spatial instrumental variable) and theme (e.g. productivity gains), and protoype studies are presented in detail. We conclude that descriptive analyses – frequently done by official authorities – do not suffice for the tasks mentioned. The successful more elaborate techniques on the other hand require several additional statistical tools to be reliable and other data sources that traditionally have not been collected by official authorities. The purpose of this paper is to report the state of the art in quantitative ex-post analyses of social and economic spatial effects due to changes in transport supply. The reader gains a current overview and a clear picture of such studies and their methods Show more
