KIPDA Regional Household Travel Survey, 2001 (ICPSR 34720)

Principal Investigator(s): ETC Institute


KIPDA (Kentuckiana Planning and Development Agency) initiated this study during the Fall of 2000 for the purpose of updating regional travel demand models. The universe for the survey consisted of households in the five county Louisville transportation planning study area, including Clark and Floyd counties in Indiana and Bullitt, Jefferson, and Oldham counties in Kentucky. The original goal for the project was to obtain completed surveys from at least 3,500 randomly sampled households in the region. Respondents were asked to complete a travel log to document their trips, activities, transportation methods, and travel time for a 24-hour period. Demographic variables include number of vehicles per household, number of occupants per household, type of household structure, whether respondents held a driver's license, annual household income, whether respondents had a physical disability, employment status, age, gender, and race of respondents.
