Measuring Activity Spaces of People, Households and Population Segments

This paper contributes to the discussions on activity location choice modelling by examining the concept of activity spaces. Actually, data from large scale Origin-Destination surveys held in 1998 and 2003 in the Greater Montreal Area are used for the first time to quantify the use of space of more than 165,000 people nested in some 65,000 households. Systematic measures of daily activity spaces of individuals and households show that the number of locations used for daily activities have decreased during the 5 year period for every segment but that the area used to conduct these activities have increased.
