World Road Statistics

Author: International Road Federation

Since 51 years, the IRF World Road Statistics (WRS) continue to be the only comprehensive, universal source of statistical data on road networks, traffic and inland transport. Over the past years, the WRS have proved to be an invaluable and internationally accepted reference tool for governments, NGOs, investments banks, research institutes and anyone analyzing and reporting trends in key subject areas like traffic volumes and vehicle usage, road expenditure, road safety, energy consumption and emissions. Last year, in the celebrations leading up to the WRS 50th Anniversary (data 2000-2011), the IRF was able to release a comprehensive publication that included for the first time twelve years of updated data. This year, the WRS 2014 (data 2007-2012) features more than 200 countries, with data on over 45 road related topics, presented in nine substantive sections.
