Number Concept Description
1 Data description In the Urban Audit these variables are included in the domain "Travel patterns". Data on total number of private passenger cars registered (by natural persons, not business, enterprises, so no taxis or hire cars registered by enterprises) to addresses within boundary on the 1st of January of the reference year is provided. This is the total stock of cars, not just new registrations.
In Bulgaria the cost of the combined monthly ticket does not depend on the distance.
The deaths in road accidents are the people who were killed outright or who died within 30 days as a result of the accident.
