European data


Additional information

The bars depict the intensity of transport demand in the current year in relation to the intensity in the previous year. An index above 100 results from transport demand outpacing GDP growth (i.e. positive bar = no decoupling) whereas an index below 100 is explained by transport demand growing less rapidly than GDP (i.e. negative bar = decoupling). See also indicator definition.
