  • Abstract

    The 2001-2003 Ohio Statewide Household Travel Survey is a comprehensive study of the demographic and average weekday, local and regional personal travel made by residents of Ohio. This survey entailed the collection of activity and travel information for all household members. The survey relied on the willingness of regional households to (1) provide demographic information about the household, its members and its vehicles and (2) have all household members record all travel and activity for the travel period, including address information for all locations visited, trip purpose, mode, and travel times. Demographic information includes age, gender, valid driver's license, occupation, student status, number of people in the household, and household income.
  • Abstract

  • Methods
