This paper explains that this research project on SENTRI included a sample of the population of 100 business travelers who regularly travel between Mexico and San Diego. The author reports using a questionnaire inquiring about how many travelers were looking into enrolling into the SENTRI program to reduce their wait time at the border. The paper relates that, using central tendency for the analysis of the collected data, the research indicates that there are advantages to business travelers participating in the SENTRI program. The author cites that business travelers enrolled in the SENTRI program are experiencing a reduced waiting time of a mere ten to fifteen minutes one-way. The paper concludes that similar research designs can help businesses make executive decisions. The paper includes tables and graphs.

From the Paper:

"The following are two tables containing data collected for the purposes of analyzing the feasibility of the SENTRI project. The first, Table A, contains data that was used to calculate central tendency. This table is the result of a 100-person poll that was conducted utilizing employees that traveled between Mexico and San Diego. Travelers that participated in the SENTRI program experienced the shortest wait, spending between 5 and 15 minutes on average. Travelers on foot spent on average 10 to 15 minutes waiting at the border."
