Shift variables--Two kinds of shift variables are computed, namely, shift early (SE) and shift later (SL), The model statistics demonstrate that the rho-squared which measure the difference between the time period with respect to 0 is reasonable (0.191 for WH and 0.188 indicator (on a scale from 1 through 24 with 0.5 incre- for HW), but the rho-squared with respect to the con- ments) and the midpoint of the first three time periods stants (0.003 for WH and 0.014 HW) shows that the con- (a.m., midday, and p.m. peak periods). SE is used when stants account for nearly all the variation in time-of-day the time period indicator is less than the midpoint choices. While it may be desirable for the variables in the whereas SL is used when it is greater. The square of these models to account for more of the time-of-day choices, the variables is also used in the models to see the impact of primary objective of the model is to provide sensitivity to very short and very long delays on temporal choice trip characteristics, which is achieved by these models. behavior.
