Principal Investigator(s):

Summary:

This data collection provides travel-to-work data for respondents living in 21 Standard Metropolitan Statistical Areas (SMSAs). Data cover respondents' place of work, means of transportation to work, carpooling and carpool occupancy, time and distance from home to work, and time of departure for work. The data also include transportation-related information such as access to a garage or carport at respondent's home, cost of rented parking spaces, and number of cars owned. Information about respondents's neighborhoods includes existence of street noise or heavy street traffic, poor street conditions, crime, objectionable odors, adequacy of schools, fire and police protection, health clinics, and respondents' opinions of the overall neighborhood quality. The data contained in this collection are from the travel-to-work supplement in ANNUAL HOUSING SURVEY, 1975 [UNITED STATES]: SMSA FILES (ICPSR 7976). The travel-to-work supplement was sponsored by the United States Department of Transportation, and the data was collected by the Census Bureau during April 1975 through March 1976. The data are contained in 21 files, one file for each SMSA represented. Demographic information collected on each respondent includes sex, age, race, marital status, and household relationship. Additional information on the household head includes educational attainment, Hispanic origin, and length of residence in current domicile.
