Are you "interested but concerned" when it comes to data analysis? Join APBP for 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.
Dr. Robert Schneider, Assistant Professor in the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee Department of
Planning, and Roger Geller, Bicycle Coordinator, City of Portland.
Note: APBP has applied for a one CM credit from the AICP for this webinar. A certificate of
