The National Walkability Index is a nationwide geographic data resource that ranks block groups according to their relative walkability. The national dataset includes walkability scores for all block groups as well as the underlying attributes that are used to rank the block groups.
Layers display information about pedestrian-oriented road network densities at the census block group level. Data is from the 2013 Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Smart Location Database (SLD).
This layer displays information about employment accessibility by estimating the number of jobs within 45 minutes (drive time) from each census block group.
This layer displays the locations of transit stops and stations. Data was acquired from the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and is available for the 200+ metro areas.
Layers display information about household automobile ownership at the census block group level.
This layer displays commuting connections between US Census Tracts. Each line represents a minimum of 20 commuters between any two tracts. Direction is not displayed, with the exception of commuters who live outside of the state of Missouri and commute into the state. Data was aggregated from the census block level using the LEHD Origin-Destination Employment Statistics (LODES) dataset (2017). Some tracts have two connections (with each tract acting as an origin and destination for at least 20 commuters), and the lines are overlayed, others have only one connection and there is a single line connecting them, however this detail is not possible to discern with this dataset. Limitations of this dataset include the lack of directionality, and the overall abundance of commuters between any two tracts. Thus, this dataset should be used for visual analysis only.
