Statistics - IRF | International Road Federation - Better Roads, Better World


IRF World Road Statistics is the only global compilation of road and vehicle statistics. It is based on data compiled from official sources within national statistics offices and national road administrations in more than 185 countries. IRF also benefits from increased cooperation with international institutions such as Eurostat and Afristat, The World Bank, and the UN ECE and the African Development Bank.

Since it first appeared in 1958, World Road Statistics has been an indispensable reference tool for road professionals, statisticians, economists, journalists and development specialists around the world.

It is used by such agencies as the United Nations Development Programme, The World Bank and the CIA for their own publications: for example, the World Bank uses World Road Statistics to prepare a part of its own publication World Development Indicators.
