CATS Household Travel Survey, 1990

A seven-year effort that produced a body of information on both work and non-work trips. Under the scope of the project, the Chicago Area Transportation Survey (CATS) surveyed the region on a county-by-county basis with the Chicago Central Business District (CBD) and the remainder of Chicago being surveyed separately. Starting in 1988, nine separate surveys were planned and conducted over a period of four years. The remaining years of the effort were spent on preparing and packaging the final data base for public distribution. The survey featured a self-administered mail-back questionnaire. The questionnaire was designed in a manner to allow the results to be adjusted and factored with the 1990 census.
