In some tables there is also data from the 1998 - 1999 and 2004 - 2005 studies that can be used for comparisons. These surveys are relatively well comparable as the research methods and definitions have mostly remained unchanged.

Excel result files are available for the themes listed below.

These files can be downloaded from the left-hand side of this page (usually by using the right mouse button and selecting ‘Save as’ or 'Save Target As') and used as needed. Each file contains the base results in tabular form.

The amount of observations used for each result is always given. The trip count is reasonably reliable if there are over 1000 observations. Reliable estimates for trip length and time generally require over 400 trip observations.
