Variables collected are inland transport of goods (T-km), of passengers (P-km) and road injury accidents. Additional information is also gathered on containers transported by rail and sea (Tons and TEU) as well as short sea shipping data (T-km).

Although there are clear definitions for all the terms used in this survey, countries might have different methodologies to calculate tonne-kilometre and passenger-kilometres. Methods could be based on traffic or mobility surveys, use very different sampling methods and estimating techniques which could affect the comparability of their statistics. Also, if the definition on road fatalities is very clear and well applied by most countries, this is not the case for road injuries. Indeed, not only countries might have different definitions but the important underreporting of road injuries in most countries can distort analysis based on these data.
