Longitudinal study on the travel behavior of the population

Transport policy and transport planning require constantly updated information on traffic events and the travel behavior of the population. On the basis of such information, the transport infrastructure can be designed to meet people's needs - today and in the future.

The German Mobility Panel (MOP) has been collecting this necessary information every year since 1994 - for example, when, for what purpose and by which means of transport people travel in Germany. To this end, households are surveyed on their travel behavior in everyday life and on their use of cars. With this information, they make an important contribution to the sensible design of transport systems.

Corona survey - initial findings

In 2020, an additional questionnaire was included in the survey documents for the first time. Several questions about changes in travel behavior during the Corona pandemic were asked. The first results of the 2018 and 2019 cohorts are already available.
