Abstract
A simulation experiment is proposed and undertaken to extend our understand ing of the role of the competing destinations spatial interaction model in capturing the effects of hierarchical destination choice. In doing so, we m ake explicit the linkage between spatial choice behaviour at different leve ls of a spatial hierarchy. We also make explicit the way in which decisions made at one level of the hierarchy can lead to biased measurements of beha viour at a lower one. This is shown when conventional spatial interaction m odels are calibrated with interaction data that result from hierarchical de stination choice.
