GUIDELINES FOR CONDUCTING SURVEYS CONCERNING TRANSPORTATION
The purpose of the study is to produce guidelines that provide specific, operational and action oriented assistance to those responsible for planning and implementing transportation surveys as a community involvement tool. A considerable amount of recent transportation survey experience along with the provision of technical information from private urban opinion survey organizations was researched and analyzed for inclusion in these guidelines. By discussing and comparing the relative merits of different survey techniques, the sampling process, questionnaire design, and examples of past surveys, these guidelines cover the theoretical as well as the practical side of the surveying process. The presentation of this information is in such a form that it can be used by field staff to insure that this vital element of a community involvement program can be performed in an efficient and effective manner.
