Abstract

This study has formulated a behavioral model of individual activity time allocation on weekends, and has extended it to incorporate the latent determinants of time use decisions during weekdays by using a latent variable model. The ultimate goals in developing this model are to improve the individual weekend activity time allocation model by introducing latent variables, and to estimate the value of activity time of different activity types. We conducted a pilot empirical investigation using a small data set regarding time use and expenditure both for weekdays and weekends, and a few indicators of the latent variables collected from individuals in Yokohama, Japan. The empirical findings suggest that the proposed model is valuable not only for modeling activity time allocation, but also in calculating the value of activity time.
