Questionnaire module

Requirements

The questionnaire module must obtain information on the number of motor vehicles available for private use by members of the household. There are three elements that the respondent must be asked to consider in answering the question:

  1. what types of vehicles should be counted, eg cars – yes, motorbikes – no
  2. whose vehicles should be counted, eg work vehicles available for private use – yes, visitors’ cars – no
  3. what conditions of vehicle should be counted, eg temporarily out of repair – yes, unlicensed – yes, unwarranted – yes.

Example

The questionnaire module below is an example that meets the requirements documented in this statistical standard. Other questionnaire modules may vary in format but should conform to the requirements contained in this statistical standard.
