Abstract

This paper reports some descriptive findings of activity-travel behaviour of children. Summary statistics are compared with those pertaining to household heads. Significant differences are found between children and household heads on virtually all indicators. It suggests that activity-based models of transport demand need to systematically include the behaviour of children and their interdependencies with activity-travel behaviour of other household members.
