About the Counts

The traffic count data are given in the standard “Average Daily Traffic” format, which represents the volume of traffic, in both directions, at a particular location on an average day during that particular year. The average traffic is computed by taking the raw traffic count data that is collected, usually over a 24-hour period, and adjusting it by factors to account for daily and seasonal variations.
