Unlike almost all other engineering disciplines, the practice of transportation engineering is based on the behavior of individual persons. Consequently, the commonly used statistics in transportation have unique characteristics. While typical statistics books are useful, they are not typically developed with civil engineers, let alone transportation engineers, in mind. Based on the authorsa (TM) collaborative educational and research activities over the past ten years, this book focuses on statistics used in the transportation industry. Through examples, it explores the issues behind many of the most popular techniques. The text also includes computer code for solving problems.
