DATA & REPORTS
DEMOGRAPHICS & SOCIOECONOMICS
A clear understanding of a regions' demographics and socioeconomics lays a foundation for informed and thoughtful transportation planning. To this end, an in-depth and extensive analysis has been completed and serves as an instrumental resource for providing insights into the region's demographic, socioeconomic, and economic landscape.
WAMPO EMPLOYMENT BY SECTOR
These reports take a deep dive into the region's many industries and explores their various impacts on the region's employment and local economy. This analysis is completed through a step-by-step review of WAMPO's seven major economic sectors as defined by the Greater Wichita Partnership.
REGIONAL ECONOMIC INDICATORS
This collection of reports and dashboards detail critical economic indicators that describe the health and resilience of the local economy. Such insights are essential for transportation planners to make informed decisions and help ensure that future transportation infrastructure meets the diverse and evolving needs of every segment of the population.
This report compiles data about the locations of workers’ primary (non-home) workplaces and residences. Together, these data provide an understanding of commuter flows, showing the interconnectedness of communities and the interchange of workers and services between areas.
HEALTH AND TRANSPORTATION
Bridging health and transportation is of great importance to WAMPO to aid and improve the communities in the region. Since the passage of the National Environmental Policy Act, in effect since 1970, and similar laws and regulations, the links between our environments, whether urban or rural, and public health have become clearer and clearer.
BICYCLE LEVEL OF TRAFFIC STRESS
WAMPO has developed a Bicycle Level of Traffic Stress (BLTS) score for each city in the WAMPO region. The scores range from 1 to 4, with the smaller number representing a lower amount of stress on the bicyclist. The purpose of the map is to better show where bicyclists may have more trouble on the road and how bicyclists and traffic are intertwined.
Vision Zero is a transportation safety philosophy based on the principle that loss of life is not an acceptable price to pay for mobility. Among those concerned with traffic safety, Vision Zero has become a useful framework to eliminate traffic deaths and severe injuries in the transportation system with a proactive and preventative approach.
HISTORICAL POPULATION TRENDS 1900-2020
This report compiles data on population trends for individual cities in the WAMPO region. Population figures were obtained from the decennial U.S. Census.
REGIONAL LABOR MARKET INDICATORS
This report compiles data on many factors to show the growth of cities compared to data for the state and the nation. It is important to note that both the state and the nation are shown as to have a comparison to how each of the cities are doing compared to state-level and national level growth.
DIVERSITY & EQUITY
WAMPO, in partnership with our various stakeholders, KDOT, and member jurisdictions, seeks to create a transportation environment that is welcoming, attractive, and inclusive, enhances health and safety, stimulates and sustains the economy, and create a positive impact on how citizens live, work, and play.
Functional classification is the system used to organize streets and highways according to how they move vehicles across our transportation network. This designation is based on criteria established by the Federal Highway Administration, such as roadway volume, speed limit, etc. Functional classification is used in transportation planning, roadway design, and is one of the factors in determining if a roadway project is eligible to receive federal funds.
Multiple cities/jurisdictions within the WAMPO region presented at 2021 TPB meetings on Growth patterns, Transportation Improvement Projects, and their plans to tie their growth patterns and Transportation Improvement Projects together with the greater WAMPO region.
Population Projections (Draft)
Population projections are an integral part of long-range transportation planning. Understanding the trajectory of a region's population is critical in forecasting future demands on the transportation system. Accordingly, WAMPO has developed draft population projections to the year 2050, with the help of expert consultation and regional stakeholder input.
