Research Report 183 Personal travel characteristics of New Zealanders – analysis of home interview survey data

Published: | Category: Transport demand management , Research programme , Research & reports | Audience: General

This research project, carried out between 1995–1997, explores the personal travel characteristics of New Zealanders that have been recorded in various household interview surveys (HIS) carried out over the last 30 years. It has brought together all the household interview survey data, both in electronic form and as documents, that are still available in New Zealand.

The trip generation rates per person and per household for person trips by mode, vehicle ownership and purpose, and for vehicle driver trips by vehicle ownership and purpose, and for vehicle driver trips by vehicle ownership, purpose, household category, occupancy, duration have been analysed. Also the stability of trip rates both between cities, and within cities over time, has been researched.
