The 2018 Benchmarking Report included 10 sections organized under Chapter III: Make Your Case. These 10 sections covered many topics relevant to bicycling and walking in the United States with references to research that supports the promotion of bicycling and walking.
Each of the 10 sections from the 2018 Benchmarking Report included:
- One to three subtopics EXAMINING CASES that look at current issues of bicycling and walking
- A topic on “ADVANCING UNDERSTANDING” that identifies areas where data could be improved
- A topic on “EMBRACING EQUITY” that explores social, economic, or racial differences related to aspects of bicycling and walking, including barriers to participation faced by different groups
- A topic on “MAKING THE HEALTH CONNECTION” that discusses public health in the context of biking and walking.
To reflect the ongoing Benchmarking Project, the 10 sections from the 2018 Benchmarking Report have been reorganized under the header of “Topics” and new topics will be added that follow their own distinct organization. Over time, topics may be updated and reorganized to reflect updates to research, laws, data, or other factors but at this time topics are from the 2018 Benchmarking Report unless otherwise noted.
You can find each of the topics below:
- HEALTHY COMMUNITIES
- TRAFFIC SAFETY
- SECTION III: STRONG ECONOMIES
- CONNECTED ROUTES
- INFRASTRUCTURE FOR PHYSICAL ACTIVITY
- EFFECTIVE TRANSPORTATION GOVERNANCE
- LAWS TO PROMOTE BIKING & WALKING
