D. Kopytkov, G. Samchuk
2020 Komunalʹne Gospodarstvo Mìst  
The article deals with the problem of determining the transport fatigue of mass transit passengers as one of the human body states.  ...  From the above-stated, we believe that a one-week break between the questionnaire surveys (No.1 and No.2) is sufficient, as the questionnaire is not a test of knowledge and does not contain information  ...  Reliability is a test quality criterion to ensure the measurement accuracy to be stable to extraneous random factors.  ...

Adaptive survey designs were an exception to this generalization under the omission error performance criterion.  ...  Generally, model performance was better using random and stratified survey designs than when using other designs.  ...  Further, if maximizing model performance based on AUC, RSS, and commission error are important, use a random or stratified design. To minimize omission error, an adaptive design could work best.  ...
