CLEVELAND-HOPKINS AIRPORT ACCESS STUDY: DATA FILE EDITING AND PRELIMINARY ANALYSIS; DATA FILE FORMATS AND CODE DESCRIPTIONS; SELECTED TABULATIONS, AIR PASSENGER STUDY

The purpose was to assess a new rail rapid transit extension between the Cleveland central business district and Hopkins Airport with reference to its impact on modal split and ridership. Statistical data on airport access by air passengers, passenger-related visitors, casual visitors, and airport employees were collected in two surveys taken before and after the commencement of transit operations. The "data file editing" report mathematically expands the survey sample data into reliable estimates about the entire population of airport users. Coding process, data editing procedures, survey response rate, and subsequent expansions of the sample are detailed. Some preliminary analysis of the data is provided through comparison of air passenger survey results with rapid transit interviews. The "data file formats" report documents actual programming procedures used to analyze the data. Appended material includes airport maps showing the survey locations and sample questionnaires. The "Selected tabulations" report reproduces actual computer printouts of significant survey data. The tabulations break down to general areas of major interest to the project sponsors: (1) mode of travel by local origin or destination and selected characteristics of the air passenger and his trip; and (2) transit station by residence of air passenger and direction of travel for selected characteristics of the air passenger and his trip. Appended material includes traffic centers and census tracts in the survey area, rapid transit stations, and sample questionnaires.
