A brief description of the method(s) used to gather data about student commuting:
Commuting data is derived from a survey conducted every few years by the Energy & Sustainability Office at WSU. The first survey was conducted in the spring of 2011 and the second was conducted in the spring of 2014. In both instances, surveys were sent to a random sample of students, faculty and staff through WSU’s Student Voice. Survey participants were asked to report on the mode(s) of transportation used to travel to campus, the distance from their home to campus, and the average number of days per week traveled to campus. If respondents indicated that they traveled to both the Ogden and Davis Campuses, then data for travel to both campuses was collected.
