Tuesdays at APA–DC

Community Preference and Transportation Survey

Tuesday, February 9, 2016 • 5:30 p.m. ET

The discussion will focus on the results of the recent National Association of Realtors poll of residents in the 50 largest metropolitan areas in the U.S.

The poll focused on biking, walking, and transit use as well as the degree to which respondents would be willing to live in a smaller home if it meant they could walk to more places.

The large sample size, 3,000, provides an opportunity to examine the data though several demographic lenses.
