§ 52.05 – What options does this template provide on sampling frequency?

(a)    This template provides you with three frequency options for period-based sampling – quarterly, monthly, and weekly.  For example, if weekly sampling requires 4 one-way bus trips per week, you must select at least 4 one-way bus trips at random from the full list of one-way bus trips that you expect to operate during a particular week.

(b)   This template provides you with up to 6 frequency options for interval-based sampling:

(1)   7-day weekly service – every day, every 2nd day, every 3rd day, every 4th day, every 5th day, and every 6th day.

(2)   6-day weekly service – every day, every 2nd day, every 3rd day, every 4th day, and every 5th day.

(3)   5-day weekly service – every day, every 2nd day, every 3rd day, and every 4th day.

(c)    You may choose whichever frequency option is best for your agency.
