§ 67.03 – What should I consider in designing the format for data recording?

(a)    The data items you have collected to determine PMT.  The exact data items depend on your service and the approach you have taken to determine PMT.

(b)   The data items that identify the service units in your sample.

(c)    A format that is easy for data analysis.

(d)   Suppose that you have designed a format in Table 67.01.  With this format, you enter the field data (7)-(14) as they appear on the field survey sheet shown in the filled-out form in Appendix 95.  Item (8) is not shown due to space limit.  The identification data items at the top of the survey sheet (1)-(6) are repeated for each stop of this one-way trip.
