The manual presents descriptions of the sources and procedures used in compiling a data set for analyzing the impacts of changes in the service and fare policies of the San Diego Transit Corporation (SDTC) bus system over a 40-month period between 1972-1975. The manual describes the data items, the sources of data, the coding procedures, and the creation of computer files. It provides a glossary of terms and concepts adopted in creating and using the data set. The intent of the manual is twofold: (1) to serve as a supplementary reference document to other reports of the Urban Institute's San Diego transit study, and (2) to be a source for those who wish to familiarize themselves with the nature and structure of the computer files.
