PROJECT PROPOSAL
Objective and motivation of analysis: The prime objective is to analyze the demand factors for the railway industry. This would include assessing economic factors, both micro and macro, along with other factors which affect the demand for rail travel viz. other modes of transport, seasonal factors and untimely events like mishaps and budgetary policies. The first sentence is vague, the next sentence neither fits into "objective" nor "motivation". In fact there is no motivation given Sector/Industry to be analyzed: Indian Railways. Aspect of economic environment/policy measure to be examined: environment/policy has nothing to do with performance The key performance indicator is the revenue generated by the Indian Railways. Data source(s) and variables to be used: The web portal of the Indian Railways, World Bank and CMIE databases. Variables are fare level of airlines, climatic indicators like temperature and rainfall, per capita income and seasonal/natural events. This is a weird list! Nature of statistical and other analysis planned: The statistical model would essentially be a multiple regression analysis model. Also, effect of dummy variables would be explored. Need to be more specific: period: dependent: independent; what dummies; etc Any other relevant issues: The outcome of the analysis would signify the effect of various factors on the revenue and thus the bottom-line of the Indian Railways. How is this another relevant issue? Its implied in what you have written
