Household type and structure, time-use pattern, and trip-chaining behavior
Lee, Yuhwa, Hickman, Mark, & Washington, Simon (2007) Household type and structure, time-use pattern, and trip-chaining behavior. Transportation Research Part A: Policy and Practice, 41(10), pp. 1004-1020.
In order to examine time allocation patterns within household-level trip-chaining, simultaneous doubly-censored Tobit models are applied to model time-use behavior within the context of household activity participation. Using the entire sample and a sub-sample of worker households from Tucson's Household Travel Survey, two sets of models are developed to better understand the phenomena of trip-chaining behavior among five types of households: single non-worker households, single worker households, couple non-worker households, couple one-worker households, and couple two-worker households. Durations of out-of-home subsistence, maintenance, and discretionary activities within trip chains are examined. Factors found to be associated with trip-chaining behavior include intra-household interactions with the household types and their structure and household head attributes.
