About

This indicator is the percentage of students in grades 6 to 12 who report usually getting to and from school actively (e.g., walk, bike, skateboard).

Source

Calculations

This indicator is calculated by dividing the number of respondents who answered "actively (e.g. walk, bike, skateboard)" by the number of respondents who answered "actively (e.g. walk, bike, skateboard), inactively (e.g. car, bus, public transit) or mixed (actively and inactively)" to the question: How do you usually get to and from school?
