Transportation Statistics Annual Report, 2006

This twelfth edition of the Transportation Statistics Annual Report presents selected transportation data on 13 topics specified in the legislative mandate of the Bureau of Transportation Statistics (BTS) of the U.S. Department of Transportation's Research and Innovative Technology Administration (RITA). Chapter 1 summarizes the data under four headings: Mobility and Access to Transportation, Safety and Security, Global Connectivity, and Energy and Environment. In most cases, the data cover the 10 most recent years for which data are available. The data are presented in Chapter 2. The Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users (SAFETEA-LU) also requires RITA's BTS to make recommendations for improving transportation statistical information and to document methods used to obtain and ensure the quality of the report's statistics. These two subjects are discussed in Chapter 3. The focus for improvements is on data gaps, including gaps that may arise because of suspension of several data collection efforts. Chapter 3 also discusses methodological guidelines that apply to federal data quality; documentation on specific data accompanies each table in Chapter 2.
