What’s in There For Me: Mining National Data for Information on Walking and Bicycling
The next APBP Webinar that BWAM will present will provide an examination of the large national databases available to us and how they can be queried to extract data on cycling and walking in our communities. This webinar will provide a user-friendly, 101-level overview of the National Household Travel Survey and the American Community Survey, including a detailed description of the data relevant to bicycle and pedestrian trips to be found in each data set; how to use the NHTS Table Designer Tool and the U.S. Census Factfinder website to extract information and build a profile of your community; and a discussion of the limitations and caveats of these tools. The session includes a case study from Portland, Oregon, that shows how these data can be used to build support for investments in cycling and walking. Presenters are Dr. Robert Schneider, Assistant Professor in the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee Department of Urban Planning, and Roger Geller, Bicycle Coordinator, City of Portland.
