This study was designed to examine individual preferences in automobile ownership and residences as well as the reasons for these preferences and their stability. Interviews were conducted in two waves with cross-section samples of respondents living in separate dwelling units in metropolitan areas with populations of 50,000 or more, exclusive of the New York metropolitan area. For each wave the data collection includes three files with different units of analysis: family units (Parts 1 and 4), journeys to work (Parts 2 and 5), and trips (Parts 3 and 6). Demographic information includes family income, number of adults in the family, number of children under 18, and age, sex, and marital status of household head.
