  • Abstract:
    Compiled and published by the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Bureau of

    Transportation Statistics (BTS), National Transportation Statistics 2006 presents

    information on the U.S. transportation system, including its physical components,

    safety record, economic performance, energy use, and environmental impacts.

    National Transportation Statistics 2006 is a companion document to the Transportation

    Statistics Annual Report, which analyzes some of the data presented here,

    and State Transportation Statistics 2006, which presents state-level data on many of

    the same topics presented here.

    The report has four chapters:

    • Chapter 1 provides data on the extent, condition, use, and performance of the

    physical transportation network.

    • Chapter 2 details transportation’s safety record, giving data on accidents,

    crashes, fatalities, and injuries for each transportation mode and hazardous

    materials.

    • Chapter 3 focuses on the relationship between transportation and the economy,

    presenting data on transportation’s contribution to the gross domestic product,

    employment by industry and occupation, and transportation-related consumer

    and government expenditures.

    • Chapter 4 presents data on transportation energy use and transportation-related

    environmental impacts.

    Appendix A contains metric conversions of select tables. BTS obtained the data

    in this report from many sources, including federal government agencies, private

    industry, and associations. Documents cited as sources for the tables provide

    detailed information about definitions, methodologies, and statistical reliability.

    Some of the data are based on samples and are subject to sampling variability.

    Generally, data are presented in five-year increments through 1995 and annually

    thereafter. The web version of the report provides a more comprehensive inventory

    of available data than presented here, including modal profiles.
