Walking and Biking in California: Analysis of the CA-NHTS

California officials aim to improve the safety of non-motorized travel in California. In order to estimate the exposure of bicycles and pedestrians to crashes, the State of California purchased an add-on to the 2009 National Household Travel Survey (called the CA-NHTS in this report). Exposure rates are calculated for pedestrians and bicyclists in the state as a whole, for each California Department of Transportation District, and for each Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPO). In addition, a few relevant areas of analysis are used to detail important aspects of walking and biking behavior in the state. While not an exhaustive presentation of CA-NHTS data, the report is an overview of the data collected on walking and biking as presented and provides control totals, margins of error, and other statistics useful for researchers and analysts interested in using the CA-NHTS.
