Abstract

The purpose of this study is to examine the spatial and temporal characteristics of weekend work episodes. Specifically, we examine whether individuals work over the weekend and, if they work, whether they work at home or outside the home. We also model the time of day of weekend work. The empirical analysis in the paper is based on the 2000 San Francisco Bay Area Travel Survey. The results indicate the important effects of day of week/seasonal effects, individual demographics, work-related variables, household characteristics, and location variables on weekend work participation characteristics. The models estimated in the paper may be embedded within a larger weekend activity-travel pattern forecasting model system.
