The Connecticut Trail Census is a statewide volunteer data collection program intended to inform a better understanding of multi-use trail use in the state of Connecticut and to make this important information available to trail user groups, administrators, government agencies and the general public. The Census collects 2 types of data: 1) Count data obtained by use of infrared (IR) counters installed at 15 sites on 11 different multi-use trails across the state, and 2) Survey data from a survey administered by volunteers at each trail site. The survey collects data regarding trail use topics such as distance traveled to use the trail, primary reason for using the trail, and demographic information about who is using the trail. The first full year of count and survey data has just been released and this webinar is being offered to walk through how to interpret the data and the exciting variety of applications the data could have.
