Below is the uncorrected machine-read text of this chapter, intended to provide our own search engines and external engines with highly rich, chapter-representative searchable text of each book. Because it is UNCORRECTED material, please consider the following text as a useful but insufficient proxy for the authoritative book pages.

88 The tables in this appendix list all variables included in the data deliverables of three recently completed household travel surveys: the 2012 California Household Travel Sur- vey, the 2011 (Atlanta) Regional Travel Survey, and the 2012 Northeast Ohio (Cleveland) Regional Travel Survey. The variables are listed based on the four typical tables that make up a household travel survey data set; these are household, person, vehicle, and place/trip tables. Permission to list these variables was given by each of the sponsoring agencies (the California Department of Transpor- tation, the Atlanta Regional Commission, and the Northeast Ohio Areawide Coordinating Agency).

TRB’s National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) Report 775: Applying GPS Data to Understand Travel Behavior, Volume I: Background, Methods, and Tests describes the research process that was used to develop guidelines on the use of multiple sources of Global Positioning System (GPS) data to understand travel behavior and activity. The guidelines, which are included in NCHRP Report 775, Volume II are intended to provide a jump-start for processing GPS data for travel behavior purposes and provide key information elements that practitioners should consider when using GPS data.
