Transport Statistics publications produced by other administrations
The Department for Transport (DfT) produces many statistical publications, most of which provide detailed breakdowns of the figures for GB/UK as a whole. However, some contain statistics for Scotland.
DfT's annual Regional Transport Statistics bulletin gives figures on many topics for Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and each of the regions of England. It should be the "first port of call" for anyone who wishes to compare any figures for transport in Scotland with those for some or all of the other parts of GB/UK.
Other DfT publications include some figures for Scotland, such as Transport Statistics Great Britain (which, like Scottish Transport Statistics, contains figures on many different aspects of Transport), Maritime Statistics, Public Transport Statistics, and Road Casualties Great Britain. Further information about DfT Transport Statistics publications is available via: www.dft.gov.uk/transtat
The Welsh Assembly Government produces various publications which contain statistics on transport in Wales, in particular Welsh Transport Statistics. More information is available via: http://new.wales.gov.uk
The statistical publications produced in Northern Ireland include Northern Ireland Transport Statistics. More information is available via: www.drdni.gov.uk/index/statistics
