The data includes direct emissions, forward, backward, internal and mixed carbon linkages of total; inland; water and air transport from 1995 to 2011. It further contains direct CO2 intensities data from 1995 to 2009. The calculations are based upon input-output tables and environmental accounts from the WIOD database. The methodology file includes the step by step procedure including the partition of Leontief inverse matrix, partitioned Cella (1984) proposal and programs/software utilized and commands executed within those programs for inter-sectoral carbon linkages calculation. Presentation of these accounts will be helpful for possible future replication of results presented in our dataset.

Summary files contain 2010 actual and 2020 forecast land use patterns, including household counts (HH) and employment counts (EMP) by Census Tract. Also included is the accessibility to jobs of each Census Tract (ACCESS). Change in households, employment, and accessibility between build and no build scenarios are included for convenience (DIFF variables).
The impedance files are the zone-to-zone travel times by auto during the peak hour used as inputs to the TELUM 2010 land use model.
For the Loop 1604 projects, there is only 2010 and 2020 travel times; for the Mobility 2040 projects, there is also 2015 travel times provided.

In recent years, concerns over effective consumer representation of public transport users have increased considerably, as public transport has undergone substantial regulatory reforms. The ultimate goal of deregulation is to protect and benefit the public at large. Hence, this paper explores how this goal is being pursued by examining the roles of statutory, independent passenger watchdogs and their relationships with authorities and operators in regulated and deregulated bus regimes. Drawing on a case study of London TravelWatch and Transport Focus in Great Britain, our findings show that statutory passenger watchdogs are effective in representing passenger interests due to four factors in particular: the organizational setting, research-based evidence, accommodating relationships, and public outreach. The paper also documents the differences in how these passenger watchdogs build their relationships with key stakeholders and work with them within the strategic-tactical-operational framework.
