City of Berwick household activity survey

The paper provides details of the conduct of a household activity survey carried out in the city of Berwick, Victoria, during 1976. The aims of the survey were to confirm the dependence of outer metropolitan municipalities on high car ownership rates, to establish the level of usage, and to evaluate the problems created to the single car family by the journey to work, with the associated social problems of housebound mothers and children. The paper details the method of sample selection, conduct of the survey, and the principles taken into account in the analysis of the data, and tabulates the results of the household schedule and the personal schedule which identified the principles. Samples of the methods of displaying the data collected are shown in some of the figures and appendices to illustrate the approach to making the information usable to community committees and non professional persons. The diary trip analysis is detailed and samples of the graphical and tabular method of display also illustrate the simplified approach. Finally, the paper gives some of the general and localised conclusions which can be drawn from the large amount of information collected.
