THE 1977 CENSUS OF TRANSPORTATION: AN UPDATE

This paper reports on the status of the 1977 Census of Transportation, which consists of four surveys: National Travel Survey, Commodity Transportation Survey, Truck Inventory and Use Survey, and Survey of Nonregulated Motor Carriers and Public Warehousing. It deals with the methodology used in these surveys compared with that followed in the 1972 census. This report also examines the problems and benefits realized from the 1977 approach. Finally, it suggests additional improvements and alternatives possible for future transportation census taking, particularly for the 1982 census. (Author)
