The National Household Travel Survey (the NPTS/ATS) is starting up in early March, and
will continue in the field for one calendar year. The national sample is 25,000
households, add-on areas may add another 20,000 samples.
The questionnaire combining the two surveys has been smoothed, and a few interesting data
items have been added. We are obtaining information on work at home, internet
availability and use, immigrant status, travel disability, and greater trip purpose
detail. The questionnaire will be available on the website within the next week or two.
The website address for the combined survey is: www.bts.gov/nhts
Thanks to everybody who let your needs for this data be known. We have really been
heartened by the amount of interest and support for the surveys.
