Improved statistical methods can contribute to more realistic solutions of automotive emissions problems and to improved decision-making and policy setting, according to the new Journal of Transportation and Statistics released today by the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Bureau of Transportation Statistics (BTS).
"Protection of the environment will be one of the major challenges for transportation in the 21st century," Dr. Ashish Sen, BTS Director, said. "Sound statistical methods will provide transportation decision makers with the information to develop better strategies to improve our environment."
The Journal of Transportation and Statistics, a quarterly publication, contains seven papers by noted academic experts on the statistical methodologies for measuring and analyzing automotive emissions.
