In this paper an estimation is made of a joint household-level model of the number of vehicles owned by a household, the vehicle type choice of each vehicle, the annual mileage on each vehicle, and the individual assigned as the primary driver for each vehicle. A version of the proposed model system currently serves as the engine for a household vehicle composition and evolution simulator, which itself has been embedded in the larger Simulator of Activities, Greenhouse Emissions, Energy, Networks, and Travel (SimAGENT), an activity-based travel and emissions forecasting system for the Southern California Association of Governments planning region.
