The CBS study ‘Onderwerg in Nederland’ (ODiN) maps the mobility of the Netherlands by means of surveys. The results of the study provide a picture of the participation of the Dutch population in traffic. This information is indispensable for the development of traffic and transport policy. This includes improving road safety, public transport, the environment and combating traffic jams.
In 2018, a new research design was launched in collaboration with Rijkswaterstaat and the Netherlands Institute for Transport Policy Analysis (KiM). The first results were published in December 2019.
This research is the successor of the ‘Onderzoek Verplaatsingen in Nederland’ (OViN) that was carried out by Statistics Netherlands from 2010 to 2017. In December, the 2018 data of the updated study was made available to users via EASY. What has changed? To start with, the questionnaire will now only be taken via the internet, which saves a lot of costs. The questionnaire is also structured differently. It has become more intuitive, making it easier to complete. Furthermore, the response has been increased: the CBS no longer aims for 35,000 but for 45,000 respondents as input for statistics.
