When a large-scale construction program is to be undertaken, it becomes important to assess its impact upon the construction market in which it is executed. Such an assessment was undertaken in 1973 in connection with the rapid transit system proposed for Atlanta, Ga. (MARTA). The paper describes the procedures followed in making the study, the statistical data obtained and sought, and the methods used to analyze the data. Procedures for forecasting construction volume are also discussed.
