HIA Background Information and HIA Indicators

This section identifies indicators for assessing the public health impact of a transportation project. These indicators include population and demographic information to identify vulnerable populations, baseline health characteristics, causes of death, traffic data, transportation mode share, air quality statistics, and combined indicators. The section presents national and local data sources for each indicator, but HIA practitioners will need to be creative in applying available resources to project-specific conditions.
