The California statewide integrated land use and transportation modeling has being developed using the PECAS framework. This paper focus on two goals: a) presenting a framework for identifying household lifestyle clusters, and b) applying them to a spatial economic model system. A household's lifestyle is defined by two sets of dimensions: space use and household wage. Using a two-step clustering algorithm, different household lifestyle clusters were identified. The applicability of these lifestyle clusters for a integrated land use and transportation model was explored.
