The travel analysis is an annual investigation conducted at the same time. The questionnaire content is divided in three: 1. a basic program repeating identical questions annually, 2. a main focus program changing each year, and 3. questions only introduced every two or three years. All persons who in the year referenced took a vacation trip were interviewed fully. For those persons who didn't undertake a vacation trip all demographic characteristics were recorded, but only every second was interviewed with the full questionnaire. The travel analyses of 1971 to 1977 are archived under ZA Study Nos. 0828 to 0834; the travel analyses of the following years begin with ZA Study No. 1146.
