The survey has been conducted annually since 2003. Consumer Expenditure Survey (CES – Bureau of Labor Statistics) - The Consumer Expenditure Surveys (CE) program provides data on expenditures, income, and demographic characteristics of consumers in the United States.

National Household Travel Survey (NHTS – Federal Highway Administration) - The National Household Travel Survey (NHTS), and its predecessor the Nationwide Personal Transportation Survey (NPTS), have been conducted by the Federal Highway Administration every 5-7 years since 1969.

Data collection for the 2016 NHTS should be completed by the summer of 2017.
