This Paper presents a description of the data base compiled from the information obtained from the National Travel Survey (NTS). The general aim of the NTS was to determine domestic non-urban travel characteristics on a fully national basis. All modes of travel were encompassed, and the seasonal nature of this travel was also monitored. As well as various travel parameters, some personal and household characteristics were obtained, to allow the influence of personal and household characteristics on long-distance travel behaviour to be assessed.
