The aim of this Report is to provide a general overview of all aspects of the National Travel Survey (NTS). The topics covered include the survey design and operation, public response to the survey, and corrections applied to the survey results.
The NTS is compared to other surveys and some lessons learnt from the NTS about survey design and operations are outlined. Finally a number of aspects of non-urban travel in Australia are discussed, with particular reference to tourist travel.
