Omnibus Survey
Household Survey Results
Final Annotated Survey Questionnaire
July 2001

Note: This version contains all changes agreed to by BTS and MDAC from the in-house testing, field pre-testing, and interviewer training. This paper version should exactly match what is fielded for data collection in July 2001, and serves as the "template" questionnaire for future months.

Professional interviewers administer this questionnaire using computer-assisted telephone interviewing (CATI). In addition to the answer categories displayed for each question, the interviewer has the option to enter "dont know" or "refused" but these categories are not displayed on-screen.

The questionnaire consists of eight sections: an introduction section, followed by six "subject matter" sections and an interviewer close-out section:

Section Topics Periodicity
F Introduction and Respondent Selection Questions Identical series each month
G General Transportation Core Questions Identical series each month
B BTS Topical Transportation Questions Change each month to address topical issues. This month: commuting, gas prices
SS Strategic Goal Questions Rotate three times per year by goal area. Bold type denotes area addressed this month:Month 1 - Safety (SS)Month 2 - Mobility (SM)Month 3 - Environment (SE)Month 4 - National Security (SN)
T USDOT Services Satisfaction Questions Identical series each month
M Operating Administration Modal Questions Change each month
D Demographic Questions Identical series each month
I Interviewer Close Out Questions Identical series each month

Formatting conventions for this document:

  • Question/answer text in boldface type displays verbatim text to read to respondent.

Words or phrases enclosed in parentheses ( ), such as in Question F0050, are optional and should be read to respondent as part of the question only when needed.
  • Answer text in regular type is not read aloud to respondent. Instead, the interviewer will wait for response and categorize it into one of the listed categories.
  • TEXT IN ALL CAPS displays on-screen instructions to the interviewer or questions that the interviewer answers.
  • Text in italics provides CATI system instructions or options, such as skips or fills.
