This Health and Transportation Data Inventory provides transportation and public health researchers and practitioners an introduction to useful data sources, tools, and methods for exploring connections between transportation systems and public health. The first section, data inventory, briefly discusses and provides links to data resources. The second section, commonly used tools, catalogs data warehousing resources and models with particular applicability to transportation and public health. Finally, section three summarizes key data gaps, emerging data resources, and research trends in the field.

This inventory is not intended to be a comprehensive review of all data resources relevant to transportation and health and will continue to evolve as a living document. If you would like to contribute additional data resources, tools, methods, or emerging trends, please email Theodore Mansfield at [e-mail].
