The Way We Move – Approaches for Survey Data Handling of the German Mobility Panel

Ecke, Lisa ORCID iD icon


The German Mobility Panel (MOP) is designed as a rotating panel over three consecutive years. People report their everyday-mobility by filling in a trip diary over a period of seven consecutive days. The multi-day, multi-period design has been nearly unaltered since 1994. The longitudinal panel approach allows the research of the dynamics and variations in travel behavior. However, the survey design results in a high respondent burden, thus endangering the quality and completeness of the collected data. Results are affected by attrition effects within one week (declining completeness of the individual report or discontinue the report completely) and reporting errors.
To ensure the necessary data quality the following approach is applied: We identify attrition effects within one week using regression models to check and evaluate whether a significant decrease in the mobility key figures over the course of the reporting week can be identified on a collective level. The characteristics of the MOP allow for the identification of those participants, who are causing these significant declines (e.g. trip-making against the background of the socio-economic characteristics). ... mehr
