Institute of Transportation Studies, University of California, Davis, Research Report UCD-ITS-RR-11-12C
As part of the UC Davis-Caltrans project, "Trip-Generation Rates for Smart-Growth Land Use Projects in California," the project team created an on-line survey to allow Practitioner Panel members to rank operational criteria that had been identified through shared discussions. Eleven panel members opened the on-line survey. Eight completed the survey. Respondents were allowed to skip questions, so there is not a consistent number of respondents for each question. Typically, there were eight responses to each question. Respondents were asked to rate criteria from 1 to 6 with 1 being the "least important" and 6 being the "most important" ranking for each criterion. The average response from 1 to 6 is shown in the shaded column. Responses are listed in the order of highest to lowest averages for each category. Top-rated criteria are listed on the last page (page 8).
