WORKSHOP ON DATA NEEDS AND COLLECTION. WORKSHOP SUMMARY

The workshop was to assess the state of the art and current practice in the areas of data needs and collection for travel forecasting and plan development. It was found that there is need to reduce the gap between available data-handling and collection methods and current practice. There are problems with maintaining appropriate data bases in a financially constrained environment. Also in question is the accuracy, efficiency and cost-effectiveness of data collection. There is the issue of equity in transportation planning. It was concluded that data collection is one of the most ignored areas of transportation planning. There is a lack of documentation of data-collection procedures. The Transportation profession as a whole must recognize that there is an extensive discipline of survey design and execution.
