THE ADELAIDE TRAVEL DEMAND AND TIME ALLOCATION STUDY: A REPORT ON PLANNING FOR THE HOUSEHOLD SURVEY

The report documents planning and the detailed forms used for a household survey of time and activity usage conducted in February 1980 as the first stage of the Adelaide time allocation and travel demand study. The overall objective of the study is to collect a data set which will permit investigation of the travel decision making process and to facilitate the development of more realistic models of travel behaviour. The major special feature of this data collection is the use of households previously surveyed for a transport planning survey of Adelaide in 1977. It is believed that the time, activity and constraint aspects of this pilot survey are therefore the first such data of this type for Australia. The household survey was planned to comprise two parts. The first is to have selected households fill out week long diaries on their activity participation and travel patterns. The second is, at the end of the week, to return to these households to interview one adult member in depth concerning the household and its trips. The questionnaire was under the three headings of household information, personal characteristics and travel information (A). (TRRL)
