This research proposes and applies an innovative methodology to help planners assess the social equity of policy for disadvantaged and non-disadvantaged population groups. This methodology distinguishes between outcome equity and impact equity, proffers non-parametric and parametric statistical tests for identifying the existence (or absence) of both types of equity, and presents a theoretical framework of ranked scenarios which integrate the findings from the statistical tests. This research then applies this methodology to land use / transportation research by examining the equity of changes in shopping travel behaviors that have accompanied the emergence of new retail land uses on the fringe of Prague. Finally, this research evaluates both the specific equity findings from the Prague data set as well as the general utility of the proposed equity model.
