This page is the one-stop place for all the National Center’s resources related to data collection and evaluation. The links provided here direct users to resources for collecting, entering, and using Safe Routes to School (SRTS) data.
There are many benefits to collecting data related to Safe Routes to School. At the local level, it can help guide the planning process and give information as to how the program is working. At the same time, many states require applicants and recipients of the SRTS funds to participate in the national data collection effort.
The National Center provides resources to help make collecting and summarizing data as easy and straightforward as possible for communities and states. These resources help those involved in local programs collect, enter, and analyze their data. Hundreds of local programs and thousands of schools are using these resources to gather information about their local SRTS programs.
