This report presents data collected in the 1983 Residential Transportation Energy Consumption Survey (RTECS). The survey was designed by the Energy Information Administration (EIA) to provide information on how energy is used by households for personal transportation. It is an integral part of a series of surveys designed by the EIA to collect data on energy used by households. Data from the surveys are available to the public through published reports such as this one and through public used data tapes. The RTECS collects data on the number and type of vehicles per household and, for each vehicle, annual miles traveled, gallons of fuel consumed, type of fuel used, price paid for fuel, and vehicle miles-per-gallon. The transportation sample, which consists of 3776 households, was drawn from a larger sample selected for participation in the 1982 Residential Energy Consumption Survey (RECS).
