Transportation cost estimating methodologies have been developed for use in DORO study efforts. This report provides instructions for using these rates and details the methodology used in their development. Three separate estimates are available for both first and second destination rates. The three methods of estimating transportation costs provide different levels of accuracy. For first destination rates, the three estimates listed in order of increasing accuracy are based on state pairs, DORO cluster pairs, or origin statemileage data. For second destination rates, the three estimates again listing in order of increasing accuracy are based on depotstate pairs, depotDORO cluster pairs, and depotmileage data. The actual application of the rates is left to the user. The rate structures lend themselves to FORTRAN or COBOL applications and could be modified for use in SPSS or SAS applications. These rates were tested against actual data using a FORTRAN program. Therefore, less work will be required for a FORTRAN based application because much of the code is already written.
