The Benchmarking Report

In conjunction with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's Active People Healthy Nation Initiative, the League of American Bicyclists regularly publishes the Benchmarking Report on Biking and Walking in the United States.

The Benchmarking Report collects and analyzes data on bicycling and walking in all 50 states, the 52 largest U.S. cities, and a select number of midsized cities. The Benchmarking Report combines original research with over 20 government data sources to compile data on bicycling and walking levels and demographics, safety, funding, policies, infrastructure, education, public health indicators, and economic impacts.

It is a go-to resource for public officials, advocates, decision makers, and researchers.

The 2018 Benchmarking Report

Bicycling and Walking in the United States: 2018 Benchmarking Report was funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and made possible through the additional support from AARP and Toole Design Group.
