    The Canadian Vehicle Survey (CVS) is a voluntary, vehicle-based survey that provides quarterly and annual estimates of road vehicle activity. This includes vehicle-kilometres and passenger-kilometres as well as a number of other elements related to the trip such as sex of driver, time of day and season.

    In 2007, the sample size of the CVS was increased in order to address a data gap regarding consumption of fuel for personal use. The CVS was seen as a possible solution to getting better insight into the household component of fuel consumption. By differentiating between types of vehicle use the CVS can provide estimates of fuel consumed for personal and business purposes.

    The aims of this report are twofold. The first is to present a national, annual profile of vehicle fuel consumption by type of use. The second is to compare the fuel quantities produced by the CVS with other known data sources, especially those data generated by Statistics Canada. This data comparison will provide grounding for future work using this data. Explanations are put forward to account for discrepancies between the data.

    This paper discusses in detail issues dealing with the technical aspects of designing and conducting surveys. It is intended for an audience of survey methodologists.

    The Canadian Vehicle Survey (CVS), which began in 1999, is designed to collect information about the usage of motor vehicles registered in Canada. The CVS target population includes all on-road vehicles (except special equipment, trailers and motorcycles) registered in Canada. A sample of vehicles is drawn each quarter and a seven-day trip log is used to gather detailed vehicle usage patterns. The log includes questions on kilometres driven, number of passengers, vehicle characteristics, trip purpose and travel times, driver and passenger demographics and fuel usage. Since this is a voluntary survey and the log takes seven days to complete, every effort is made to ensure a good response rate and prevent response errors. The first part of this paper describes the current survey design, data collection, and editing and imputation methodology. Then it goes on to explain the challenges associated with the different steps of the survey. Finally, findings from the research carried out to minimize the effects of non-sampling errors are presented.
