DATA DATA

Road transport

This domain contains aggregated data from the Common Questionnaire (Eurostat/UNECE/ITF) and detailed annual and quarterly freight transport data from Council Directive 78/546/EEC of 12 June 1978, as amended by Council Directive 89/462/EEC of 18 July 1989.

Since 1999, the tables are derived from micro data collected under Council Regulation (EC) 1172/98.

Rail transport

Rail transport statistics are based on two sources. Data on railway infrastructure, equipment, enterprises and traffic are collected using the Common Questionnaire (Eurostat/UNECE/ITF). In addition, one table in the regional transport section is based on another voluntary data collection (the "REGWeb" questionnaire) and contains information on railway infrastructure (length of railway lines – total, electrified and with two or more tracks) by NUTS 2 region.

The data collections on goods and passenger transport and on rail accidents are based on Regulation 91/2003 from the beginning of 2003 on. The freight data from 1982 until 2002 are based on Directive 80/1177/EEC.
