Considerable information is collected and known concerning residential transportation energy use from currently existing surveys. Energy use data in the non-residential transportation sector, however, cover a broad spectrum from very good, reliable data to virtually non-existent data. The objective of this report is to identify and evaluate the sources of data that relate to energy end use in the non-residential transportation sector. The compendium lists data sources, level of detail, frequency of publication, time between data occurrence and data availability, and the probability of continued publication. In addition, to the extent possible, quality of the data is assessed. All modes of the non-residential transportation sector - highway, air, rail, marine, pipeline, and military - are covered in this study. Exhibits of all tables from the various data sources, showing energy consumption estimates or other data from which energy use may be derived, are included with the discussion of the mode. For the modes of transportation that are the most regulated, a significant amount of data are available. Conversely, for those areas or modes where there is no regulation and the industry, itself, is rather disjointed, there may always be a dearth of data or information.
