TRAVEL TO WORK PATTERNS: A PRELIMINARY ANALYSIS OF SELECTED DATA FROM THE ANNUAL HOUSING SURVEY TRAVEL-TO-WORK FILE

The annual housing survey travel-to-work file has provided researchers and practitioners with an opportunity to describe the travel patterns of various socioeconomic and geographic population subgroups, and to explore the relationship between other transportation related variables. The report addresses twelve questions representing the following five topic areas: (1) travel-to-work patterns of selected groups including men, women, working wives, female household heads, residents of public and subsidized housing, residents of mobile homes, and residents of various size communities; (2) travel-to-work mode shift patterns of American workers; (3) the relationship between the perception and use of public transit; (4) the interrelationships of perceived neighborhood attributes and travel patterns; and (5) the relationships between residential mobility and travel patterns. Both the 1975 national sample and the 1975-76 Atlanta, Chicago, and San Francisco SMSA samples were used.
