NON-HOUSEHOLD SURVEYS. IN: TRANSPORT SURVEY QUALITY AND INNOVATION

This chapter provides an overview of different types of non-household surveys. They include: on-mode public transport surveys; roadside surveys; surveys at mode-specific boarding/disembarkation points; surveys at general attractors or activity sites; work-place surveys; on-street surveys and hall tests; and general in-transit surveys. Non-household surveys can meet the needs of the transport operator or facility manager; they can supplement or complement households' travel diary surveys; they present an opportunity for the respondent to record an immediate experience, and supply focus for travel surveys related to attracting centers. Design requirements for non-household surveys are similar to those considered for household surveys. They include: setting objectives; determining sample size; selecting an appropriate sample frame; devising means of sampling; selecting an appropriate survey method; and designing suitable survey instruments that will minimize nonresponse.
