Version V1

The 2000 Sacramento Area Household Travel Survey, like all recent household travel surveys, relied on the willingness of area residents to complete diary records of their daily travel for a specified day. During their travel day, participating household members were asked to record travel information in a travel diary for the specified 24-hour period. The information documented by respondents includes trip activities, mode of transportation, trip times, and trip location. Demographic information includes gender, age, whether the respondent held a valid driver's license, whether the respondent was a student, employment status, household income, whether the respondent owned or rented a home, and household size.

The purpose of the study was to provide data for the continuing development and refinement of the Regional Travel Demand Forecasting Model, as well as to provide a better understanding of travel behavior in the north central California region.

The survey employed a probability sample selection process to include households in the survey. The type of probability sample used is stratified sampling in which the sample elements were drawn proportionately to households within the six counties with an over sample in the urban areas. The sample was randomly generated across all telephone exchanges within the study area. For additional information regarding sampling, please refer to the Original P.I. Documentation section of the ICPSR codebook.


The universe for the 2000 Sacramento Area Household Travel Survey is defined as all households located in the SACOG jurisdiction.
