Glossary for Transport Statistics

Glossary for Transport Statistics cover image


The fifth edition of the Glossary for Transport Statistics contains 744 definitions that provide a point of reference for all involved in transport statistics. Specifically, it assists countries with the collection of data on transport using the Common Questionnaire developed by the UNECE, the International Transport Forum (ITF) and Eurostat.  The present edition covers all areas of transport. It is the result of a continuing co-operation between UNECE, ITF and Eurostat in the Intersecretariat Working Group (IWG) that has helped considerably to harmonise transport statistics at the European and international level. The IWG provided valuable input with respect to missing definitions, outdated terminology and the general revision, clarification and illustration of content. Following the Glossary's definitions will make a considerable contribution to improving the quality and comparability of transport-related data.
