Glossary for transport statistics


The Glossary for transport statistics was published for the first time in 1994 with the purpose of assisting member countries during the collection of data on transport made by the UNECE, ECMT and Eurostat through the Common Questionnaire.

The fourth edition includes a substantial revision of the rail, road, inland waterway, pipelines and intermodal chapters. A new air transport chapter has been added. In rail, the revision takes account of the changing environment facing rail operators, especially in Europe. In addition, a completely new rail accidents section has been added. The road and inland waterway chapters have also benefited from a thorough revision to reflect current concerns. For the inland waterway chapter, an accident section has been added. The pipeline chapter has been extended to cover gas as well as oil pipelines, given their growing importance in supplying the energy market.
