Transportation Planning Studies
Data & Performance
FDOT Sociocultural Effects Evaluation Process. Provides step-by-step instructions for conducting sociocultural effects (SCE) evaluation during the FDOT Efficient Transportation Decision Making (ETDM) Process—when projects undergo Planning or Programming screens as part of the ETDM Process—and during the Project Development and Environment (PD&E) phase.
Mobility Performance Measures Program. The MPM program is designed to develop and report on multimodal mobility performance measures. Transportation's most essential function is to provide mobility for people and goods. By measuring the performance of mobility, we can better understand how to improve it.
Florida’s Transportation Trends. The Planning Division tracks transportation-related "Trends" information that could pose threats to successful implementation of the Florida Transportation Plan. This information can be used by Florida's decision makers, transportation professionals and the interested public to assist in understanding transportation-related issues and making wise and informed decisions.
Commuting Trends in Florida. This report describes commuting trends in Florida and the United States based on the 2016 American Community Survey (ACS).
Population Projections and Estimates. The FDOT Forecasting and Trends Office (FTO) conducts demographic analyses. As an affiliate of the State Census Data Center, FTO provides annual population estimates and 5-30 year projections based on the population study of the Bureau of Economic and Business Research (BEBR).
System Traffic Modeling. The Systems Traffic Modeling Section of FDOT develops and maintains transportation computer models that forecast travel demand using computerized simulation models. The Central Office modeling section works with the districts, MPOs, cities, counties, and other government agencies in the use of these models and provides technical guidance, training, and assistance.
Sea Level Scenario Sketch Planning Tool. The tool is designed to help identify transportation infrastructure vulnerable to current and future flood risks. The tool analyzes and visualizes current flood risks (100-year and 500-year floodplains and hurricane storm surge zones) as well as future flood risks using sea level rise (SLR) scenarios from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA)/National Climate Assessment.
