Average Daily Traffic Counts Average Daily Traffic Counts Transportation
Average Daily Traffic (ADT) counts are analogous to a census count of vehicles on city streets. These counts provide a close approximation to the actual number of vehicles passing through a given location on an average weekday. Since it is not possible to count every vehicle on every city street, sample counts are taken along larger streets to get an estimate of traffic on half-mile or one-mile street segments. ADT counts are used by city planners, transportation engineers, real-estate developers, marketers and many others for myriad planning and operational purposes. Data Owner: Transportation. Time Period: 2006. Frequency: A citywide count is taken approximately every 10 years. A limited number of traffic counts will be taken and added to the list periodically. Related Applications: Traffic Information Interactive Map (http://webapps.cityofchicago.org/traffic/).

INSPECTION CATEGORY: Inspections are categorized by one of the following: COMPLAINT – Inspection is a result of a 311 Complaint PERIODIC – Inspection is a result of recurring inspection (typically on an annual cycle) PERMIT – Inspection is a result of a Permit REGISTRATION – Inspection is a result of a Registration (typically Vacant Building Registration) PROPERTY GROUP: Properties (lots) in the City of Chicago can typically have multiple point addresses, range addresses and buildings. Examples are corner lots, large lots, lots with front and rear buildings, etc.. As a result, inspections (and their associated violations), permits and complaints related to a single property could have different addresses. This problem can be reconciled by using Property Group. All point and range addresses for a property are assigned the same Property Group key.
