A COMPARISON OF TRAFFIC SURVEYS WITH A HOME-INTERVIEW

EEN VERGELIJKING VAN VERKEERSONDERZOEKEN MET EEN HUISENQUETE

Home interviews are used in traffic research. In literature several examples of these interviews can be found. In this article the results of eight interviews, conducted in several parts of the Netherlands, are compared. Differences in definitions, people sampled and year of the research (important for changes in income-level, age distribution etc) are used. From these comparisons three major results are: trip production varies from 2,5 to 5,0 trips pc on working days (the rural area of the province of Friesland and Amsterdam respectively). It was found that the modal split varies from the 8 regions between 20% and 30% for people travelling on foot, 30%-37% for bicycling and 23%-29% for driving by car. Regarding the time-distribution of these trips (over the hours of the day) it was found that this was about the same for the 8 regions. The peakhour bears 10%-11% of the total. /TRRL/
