Plan for Travel Data

Yesterday in class Kim, Josh, Sarah and I took a look at the travel data and came up with a plan of attack for analysis.

The first full FY of data is 1998 and the most recent is 2006. I am going to focus on these two years to determine:
  • how many people flew
  • where they went (how many miles)
With these I am going to plot out miles flown per person for those two years, and then determine how many people flew for the years in between and make assumptions from there.

Most other schools did not have hard data for their air travel and they just made general hypotheses for calculating the air travel. I think this is the best way to utilize the data that we have in the time we have for the class.
