DEVELOPING AND ADMINISTERING A HOME INTERVIEW SURVEY

Home interview surveys are widely used in the transport planning field. This report documents the procedure adopted in developing such a survey as part of a project sponsored by the Australian Road Research Board to investigate the effect of transport policy decisions on residential location choice in large urban areas. The survey covers all home-owners and home-purchasers who have recently moved to selected locations in Melbourne. This report discusses the process for deciding on the questionnaire format as well as the procedure used in engaging the interviewers and training them to collect the data. The report discusses the coding of the data and the costs associated with the interviews. The survey forms and the interviewer instructions used in the survey are also presented. The method of structured interviews was adopted with the interviewer actively administering a defined schedule of questions. The main survey was directed towards the first major decision maker contacted in the household. /Author/TRRL/
