The California Statewide Household Travel Survey, 2000-2001 was conducted in all 58 counties in California. Respondents were asked to record their travel and activities for either a 24- or 48-hour period. They were also asked to report detailed information regarding their trips, including trip times, mode of transportation, trip activities, trip origin, and trip destination. Demographic variables include gender, age, employment status, household size, vehicle ownership, whether household members were students on their given travel day, household income, type of housing unit, and whether respondents had a valid driver's license at the time of the survey.
