Schroeder, Sierra L; Gustafson, Kent; Schneider, Ingrid E. (2011) Quality of Life: Assessment for Transportation Performance Indicators Focus Group Report
Quality of life‘ has multiple definitions yet specific indicators for transportation remain absent. As such, an opportunity exists for both academe and transportation professionals to better understand the relationship between quality of life and transportation. As the Minnesota Department of Transportation (Mn/DOT) seeks to align programs and services with citizen needs and expectations, evaluating what Quality of Life (QOL) means to the public and how it relates to transportation can inform Mn/DOT program and service delivery. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to assess and evaluate transportation-related quality of life indicators and the role of Mn/DOT programs and services in quality of life. Three inter-related approaches were undertaken: 1) a literature review, 2) focus groups, and 3) a questionnaire. This project reports on the focus groups.
