The Seattle Household Travel Survey Wave 6, 1996 is the sixth wave in a ten-part longitudinal panel survey of the travel patterns of households in the Puget Sound region of W ashington State. The survey series was initiated in 1989 by the Puget Sound Council of Governments (now known as the Puget Sound Regional Council); wave 6 was conducted during the second and third quarters of 1996. This collection contains the sixth set of panel data for approximately 2,000 households in King, Kitsap, Pierce, and Snohomish counties. Due to various sources of attrition, approximately 20 percent of households needed to be replaced for each survey wave. The survey relied on the willingness of study area residents to (1) provide demographic information about the household, its members, and its vehicles, (2) document all travel for each household member, aged 15 years or older, for an assigned 2-day period, and (3) agree to participate in additional survey waves. After an initial telephone screening, survey participants received mailed travel diaries to aid in documenting travel information for the 2-day assessment period. Respondents were instructed to record their mode of transportation, trip purpose, number of vehicle passengers, departure and arrival times, ride fare, and parking costs. Demographic information for this study includes age, gender, education, employment status, and household income.
