Research Report 522 Blueprint for a best practice measurement indicator set and benchmarking

Published: | Category: Sustainable land transport , Research programme , Research & reports | Audiences: Communities, General

This report develops an indicator framework for measuring the contribution of land transport to the aggregate wellbeing of New Zealanders. The starting point is viewing transport as an input into the generation of wellbeing, reflecting the role of transport as a technology that enables human interaction, trade and other activities. Transport improves wellbeing if it better facilitates these activities and/or imposes lower costs. This leads to categories of indicators based on observable characteristics of the transport system that are relevant to aggregate wellbeing, ie network performance and capability, safety, health and environmental effects, and cost.

An exploratory study of barriers to child restraint use in New Zealand

Published: | Category: Research & reports | Audience: Communities

The key objective of this research is to determine which factors are seen as barriers to child restraint use by New Zealand parents, and that ultimately prevent some from correctly restraining their children. Identification of these barriers will provide the evidence-base to inform and help target future interventions, such that policy interventions, education initiatives, or social media campaigns are more effective at increasing child restraint rates among non-compliant parents, as well as reducing barriers for those parents that do comply.
