Transport connectivity and accessibility of key services statistics

Transport connectivity and accessibility of key services information.

Accessibility statistics provide a local-level measure of the availability of transport to important services (covering food stores, education, health care, town centres and employment centres) for the populations who use them. They are used in accessibility planning by local authorities, as well as being the basis of an indicator in the department’s 2011 to 2015 business plan.

Connectivity statistics are an experimental development, which extend the approach to look at longer journeys to access fewer, more strategically significant destinations (in the first instance, focus is on access to transport destinations including airports, larger rail stations and major road junctions).

Technical information

These statistics are derived from the analysis of spatial data on public transport timetables; road, cycle and footpath networks; population and key local services.

National statistics

All of the statistics published in this series are Official Statistics. The department’s view is that all statistics which are not designated as National Statistics are robust and have been produced to a suitable standard.
