Q. Where can I find data and statistics on highways?


Federal Highway Administration (FHWA)

  • Highway Statistics Series: Annual reports containing analyzed statistical information on motor fuel, motor vehicle registrations, driver licenses, highway user taxation, highway mileage, travel, and highway finance. These information are presented in tables as well as selected charts. It has been published annually since 1945.

  • Traffic Volume Trends: Monthly report based on hourly traffic count data reported by the States. These data are collected at approximately 4,000 continuous traffic counting locations nationwide and are used to estimate the percent change in traffic for the current month compared with the same month in the previous year. Estimates are re-adjusted annually to match the vehicle miles of travel from the Highway Performance Monitoring System and are continually updated with additional data.

  • National Household Travel Survey: Periodic national survey used to assist transportation planners and policy makers who need comprehensive data on travel and transportation patterns in the United States.
