About the study

The German Mobility Panel consists of two parts:

⟶ Part 1: survey about everyday mobility

⟶ Part 2: survey about car mileage and fuel consumption

Survey about everyday mobility

Every year in autumn, households and people are surveyed on their everyday mobility. For this part of the study we ask you to fill out a questionnaire about your household and to keep a so-called trip diary. The first one consists for example of questions about public transport accessibility, car ownership or about your household members.

In the trip diary all trips should be documented made in the course of one week, including start and end time of each trip, means of transport used, trip purpose (work, shopping, etc.) and distance covered. The trip diary should be kept by yourself and by each person over 10 years of age in your household.

In the trip diary all trips should be documented made in the course of one week, including start and end time of each trip, means of transport used, trip purpose (work, shopping, etc.) and distance covered. The trip diary should be kept by yourself and by each person over 10 years of age in your household.

You can decide whether you would like to work on the survey in paper form or on your computer / mobile device (smartphone, tablet…).

Survey about car mileage and fuel consumption

Besides the survey about everyday mobility, in spring, households are also asked about mileage and refueling events of their cars. Therefore, we need support from those participants of the survey of everyday mobility whose household owns at least one car. These participants are asked to fill out a so-called mileage diary over a period of eight weeks to report on all refueling events. In this diary you please note

date the refueling event took place,

 odometer reading

amount of gasoline dispensed,

refueling cost.

 

Participants also provide information about the considered car (year, fuel type, power, etc.).

Of course, there will be no additional costs for returning the documents. Households receive addressed prepaid envelopes for all the documents (no need to add postage). For participating in the study, every household gets a little reward.
