Results from the 2000 SCAG Post-Census Regional Travel Survey and the 2010-2012 California Household Travel Survey are used to study the demographics and characteristics of Imperial, Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, and Ventura counties. Graphs for each county are created to show pertinent data to transportation applications, such as the average number of vehicles a household owns or how many trips certain individuals make in one day. Studying both sets of data gives perspective on how the SCAG region has evolved over 12 years. The overwhelming majority of trips are still traveled by personal vehicle, despite walking trips seeing an increase over 2000, and trips are more frequent overall.
