2019 Kansas City Regional Household Travel Survey

The 2019 Kansas City Regional Household Travel Survey collected 24-hour socio-demographic data of household travel behavior during weekdays in the spring of 2018 in the Kansas City region—including Johnson, Leavenworth, Miami, and Wyandotte counties in Kansas and Cass, Clay, Jackson, and Platte counties in Missouri.

Data Collection Agency

Westat conducted the study on behalf of the Mid-America Regional Council.


The focus of the survey was to collect travel-behavior data from 4,000 households in the region encompassing Mid-America Regional Council’s travel-demand model domain. A mixed-mode survey, it provided web and telephone options for the recruitment survey and web, telephone, and smartphone app options for the retrieval or travel survey. The app option served to replace paper logs and help assess trip under-reporting from the self-reported component of the survey.
