Emerging Econometric and Data Collection Methods for Capturing Attitudinal and Social Factors in Activity and Travel Behavior Modeling

This study presents a survey designed to test for correlations between social resources and leisure activity behavior. An outcome was tested, leisure activity participation variety, which showed positive correlations with instrumental and expressive social resource access. This work motivates the use of this survey instrument with a larger sample to increase the inferential strength of this social capital theory in explaining leisure activity behavior. It is important to note that although the Qualtrics Panel sample had the greatest issue with validity, this was partially due to greater mobile device usage. The greater diversity of that sample may outweigh this and careful consideration of survey design for mobile devices is warranted.
