2002 Champaign-Urbana-Savoy Travel Survey (ICPSR 35263)

Principal Investigator(s): Morocoima-Black, Rita, Champaign County Regional Planning Commission; Kang, Eun-ah, Champaign County Regional Planning Commission


The 2002 Champaign-Urbana-Savoy Travel Survey is a comprehensive study of the demographic and average weekday, local and regional personal travel made by residents of the Champaign-Urbana-Savoy urbanized area. 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 household size, household income, employment status, and student status.
