ACCURACY OF DWELLING UNIT SURVEYS IN TRAVEL FORECASTING

This paper evaluates the cost-effectiveness of dwelling unit surveys for use in forecasting future travel needs. It presents a guantitative framework for survey decision making by relating expected exstimation accuracies to sampling rates, traffic zone sizes and the relative variation of each travel attribute among dwelling units. It appears that the effectiveness of dwelling unit surveys may not warrant the costs involved and especially when trip generation rates and traffic models acheive the needed results.
