FAMILY EXPENDITURE SURVEY DATA AND THEIR REFERENCE TO TRANSPORT PLANNING

An assessment of family expenditure survey data from the standpoint of transport planning and evaluation is given. The primary emphasis is on recently available Australian data, although comparisons are also made with overseas data where these are available. Issues covered include the following: basic organisational features of family expenditure surveys; general limitations in using this source of data; the practical value of family expenditure data in the appraisal of transport needs and demands; complementary sources of data and/or refinements to family expenditure surveys which are needed for transport planning purposes; and key research areas which are left untouched by family expenditure surveys. /TRRL/
