Passenger demand forecasts for the railway are derived from industry standard forecasting tools which draw upon forecasts of population and employment changes, economic growth and other related factors. Demand data upon which future forecasts are based are derived from analysis of ticket sales and passenger counts and surveys, such as the London Area Travel Surveys (LATS).
