This manual has been prepared as a part of overall effort by the City of Houston to explore various growth options for the City and the impact of such options on the housing market and requirements for City services. Key to the development and testing of growth options is the creation of various analytic tools.One such tool is a housing calculation tool. The housing tool is a series of interrelated computer programs which generate data on City housing population and household characteristics. To facilitate use of the housing tool, user procedures have been developed which allow City staff to operate the computer programs with a minimum of background and experience in computer programming. English language prompts or instructions have been developed and placed in the computer. These prompts are a series of steps which guide the user through a process of: (1) assumption setting ; (2) execution of various modules of the tool; and (3) preparation of summary reports of the output generated by the various modules on a computer.
This report is part of the collection of scanned historical documents available to the public.
