The Omnibus Surveys were designed as a convenient way to get very quick input on transportation issues, as well as to gauge public satisfaction with the transportation system and government programs. The Omnibus Surveys consisted of two vehicles: (1) a recurring household survey of 1,000 households that collected data on core questions about general travel experiences, satisfaction with the system, and some demographic data; and (2) a series of targeted surveys to address specific transportation issues or domains. The OHS program was suspended in 2009.
Household Survey Results
In support of the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) Performance Plan, the Bureau of Transportation Statistics (BTS) Omnibus Household Survey assesses the public's satisfaction with the transportation system and its interactions with DOT agencies. Data for the survey are from approximately 1,000 randomly selected telephone households and are weighted to allow inferences about the noninstitutionalized population aged 18 years or older who are currently living in the United States.
