HOUSEHOLD TRAVEL SURVEYS: NEW CONCEPTS AND RESEARCH NEEDS

This paper is a summary of the Conference on Household Travel Surveys: New Concepts and Research Needs, held in Irvine California, March 12-15, 1995. It provides background information, outlines the conference objectives, summarizes each of the five workshops, and presents the overarching themes that emerged from the workshops. These themes are: concerns about standards and best practice; concerns that quantity of sample and budget are too often the drivers of surveys, because clients do not know what a "good" survey is; nonresponse; expectations of random digit dialing becoming increasingly difficult; and need for research to determine how to perform surveys better.
