This report provides a broad range of quarterly, monthly, and weekly statistics for the transportation community. It was developed by the Bureau of Transportation Statistics (BTS) of the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT), and is updated every two months on the BTS website.
The indicators fall under two general categories: those that provide context about the economy and society in which transportation functions, and those that convey information about an aspect of transportation. These latter indicators are either transportation-wide in scope or apply to a specific aspect of the transportation system.
For indicators that are highly seasonal, the current value of that indicator is compared to the same time period in the previous year (e.g., October 2012 compared to October 2011). Otherwise, the tables show a comparison of the current value to a comparable preceding period of time (e.g., the data for the month of October 2012 compared to that of September 2012).
NOTE: This report was renamed from "Key Transportation Indicators" in August 2011. This replaced the earlier Transportation Indicators report, which was last published in December 2002.
