A new statistical release for January 2018 from the Department for Transport presents four pieces of analysis using National Travel Survey data. Key findings include:
The National Travel Survey is a household survey of personal travel by residents of England travelling within Great Britain, from data collected via interviews and a one week travel diary. It includes analyses of travel trends going back to 1972; differences in travel between different types of locations; and an analysis of trips that use more than one mode.
The 2016 National Travel Survey (NTS) publication, released in July 2017, contained the latest results from the continuing series of household travel surveys designed to provide a consistent source of data on personal travel behaviour across England. The DfT had planned to follow up the July statistical release with this publication containing reweighted NTS data for short walks from 2002 to 2015, and a consistent time series of walking trips up to and including 2016. However, they say, they have 'decided to wait until later in the year to complete this reweighting exercise. This will enable us to consider the new 2017 data too as part of that work and produce a consistent set of walking data from 2002 to 2017. 2017 is the first year we collected short walks on Day 1 for the whole sample.'
