A brief description of the method(s) used to gather data about employee commuting, including the timeframe for when the analysis was conducted and how a representative sample was reached, if applicable:

We conducted this survey through a self-selection, non-probability sampling. In order to attempt to gather a variety of respondent-types, we utilized headlines which would get the attention of both “environmentally minded” and “parking-driving minded” respondents.

We maintained a margin of error of 5 by retrieving 303 responses across a population size of 1,400 faculty members, (FTE).
