Effects of Transport Behaviour on Public Health: A Study on the Students in the Tricity Area
The effect of transport behaviour on the public health is a widely discussed matter, and a lot of research projects have been dedicated to measuring the scale of the effect. The authors of the article assume that a set of factors can be used to determine the transport choices of the general public, which in turn leads to a certain shape of the public health. Data from 241 respondents in the Tricity Area was connected to establish the strength and direction of these relations.
