Comprehensive Model of Worker Nonwork-Activity Time Use and Timing Behavior
MetadataShow full item record
This study contributes to the literature on activity time-use and activity timing analysis by developing a comprehensive, high resolution, out-of-home non-work activity generation model that considers daily activity time-use behavior and activity timing preferences in a unified random utility framework. The empirical analysis is undertaken using data from the 2000 Bay Area Travel Survey. Several important household and commuter demographics, commute characteristics, and activity-travel environment attributes are found to be significant determinants of workers' non-work activity time-use and timing behavior. The comprehensive model developed in this paper can serve as an activity generation module in an activity-based travel demand microsimulation framework.
