Improving mobility surveys quality and rate of responses at low cost by combining intercept and web questionnaire methods.
Research Areas
  • Transport
This paper presents a new method developed and tested in surveys for different purposes in Spain in the field of urban mobility. The method combines the advantages of personal intercept interviews and online questionnaires to meet two basic requirements of a survey: good quality of data and minimal costs. The aim is to evaluate the method as well as to study the willingness to answer in four different application case studies in different European cities. The analysis of the application of the method in different cities and for different research purposes proves its validity for surveying mobility behaviour and perceived quality of service. The response rates were rather high: between 15 and 22%. The method combines low cost, reliability and high response rates. Therefore it is a clear improvement of survey design and sampling practices in transport research.
