Description
  • Abstract

    The Twin Cities Metropolitan Area 1982 Travel Behavior Inventory (Home Interview Survey) was intended to document how Twin Cities residents use the streets, highways, and transit services in the region. Respondents were asked to record their travel and activities for a 24-hour period. They were also asked for detailed information regarding their trips, including mode of transportation, trip purpose, departure and arrival times, and number of passengers. Demographic variables include gender, age, employment status, household size, number of children under five years old in the household, whether household members were students on their given travel day, household income, and whether respondents had a valid drivers license at the time of the survey.
