New Survey Methods in Transport is the first comprehensive compilation of survey techniques used in the broad field of transport planning. The book provides state-of-the-art reviews in several areas of survey methodology, including cross-sectional, longitudinal and interactive surveys. Papers cover various aspects of the design, execution and analysis of cross-sectional and longitudinal surveys and highlight the use of in-depth and interactive surveys. Attention is paid to the emerging issue of the systematic biases inherent in various survey methods.
