Discusses the ideas of choice and captivity with respect to travel choices, and explores the effects on calibration and prediction of including captives in the data. It is shown that the inclusion of captives causes biases in the coefficients and predictions that cannot be removed a posteriori and that these biases have important policy implications for highway and transit planning.-from ASCE Publications Abstracts
