Mode of Travel for Journey to Work measures the percentage of people who travel to and from work by a method other than driving themselves in a vehicle. Active transportation (e.g. cycling and walking) is an important way to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, air pollutants, fuel consumption, traffic and parking congestion, employee sick days, and healthcare costs. It also significantly improves people's physical and mental health, and saves households money on fuel, vehicle and parking expenses. Although only 26% of daily trips made are commutes to and from work, these are the trips that set the traffic patterns for each day, resulting in the period of vehicle traffic congestion and therefore influencing the capacity requirements of the transportation network. Generally, Edmonton is trending favourably in this measure with more people choosing to use active transportation and transit for their commutes. Increased environmental awareness, protected bike lanes, and an expanding transit network has made active and public transportation more popular. In coming years, Edmonton will continue to see significant infrastructure investments that will further encourage this shift. This data is collected as part of the municipal census, which is conducted every two years. The Total % Commuting Sustainably column is the total percentage of respondents who selected “transit,” “walking,” “cycling” to indicate how they travel to work.

The Edmonton Economic Diversity Index measures the diversity of Edmonton’s economy by comparing the city’s employment share by sector to that of Canada’s. Beginning in 2016, the City’s municipal census will include a question to gauge Edmontonians’ employment by sector, based on the North American Industry Classification System. As the City has limited control over employment and the labour market, this index is considered an indicator. Until data is available in 2016, the Edmotnon Census Metropolitan Area (CMA) Economic Diversity Index will be used.The Edmonton CMA Economic Diversity Index is calculated by comparing employment share by sector data for the Edmonton census metropolitan region to Canada’s employment share by sector. This data includes Edmonton and the surrounding municipalities that form the CMA.

This dataset provides statistics for files submitted to EPS' Professional Standards Branch (PSB) for Complaints, Citizen Contacts, and EPS Matters. Complaints are to the conduct of a member that may contravene the regulations governing the discipline or performance of duty of police officers or a complaint related to the policies of and services provided by a police service. A complaint may take the form of a written complaint, an e-mail complaint, or an online complaint submitted on the website of a police service or police commission. Complaints are further classified as “Public” or “Internal” complaints, depending on whether they were brought forward by a member of the public or a member of the EPS. Citizen Contacts are an initial contact that may be either verbal or written from a member of the public to the police service or police commission. A Citizen Contact may take the form of a concern consisting of an actual allegation under the Police Service Regulation or an offence under the Parliament of Canada or the Legislature of Alberta. A Citizen Contact may also consist of a matter that is purely inquiry or assistance-based. EPS Matters are internally generated files dealt with by PSB without invoking the Police Act and/or files that are brought to the attention of PSB for tracking purposes only. More information on EPS’s complaint process can be found from EPS here: http://www.edmontonpolicecommission.com/feedback/public-complaints-investigation-process/

This dataset provides enforcement statistics for EPS's Checkstop and Target All Drunk Drivers (TADD) program. Checkstop operations are stationary points on roadways where traffic is contacted by police to ensure drivers are sober. Checkstop includes the activities from Target All Drunk Drivers (TADD), where following the closing of a Checkstop point, officers will patrol to make contact with any vehicles that draw their attention with the primary goal of checking the driver's sobriety. Statistics here are from the combination of Checkstop and TADD activity. Vehicle Checks (Checkstop/TADD) are the number of vehicles where drivers were personally contacted by police to check for sobriety from Checkstop and TADD operations. Impaired Arrests (Checkstop/TADD) are the number of impaired driving arrests for driving with a Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) of 0.08 or more, or there is other evidence of impairment by alcohol, driving while impaired from narcotics or prescription drugs, or when testing for alcohol or drugs is refused. Roadside Suspensions (Checkstop/TADD) are the number of Alberta Administrative License Sanctions for operating a motor vehicle contrary to the drivers license restrictions. Statistics here exclude roadside suspensions issued as part of a criminal charge of impaired driving. In simple terms, the types of roadside suspensions in this measure arise from: 1. AZAT (Alberta Zero Alcohol Tolerance Program) – Issued to GDL drivers with a BAC above zero. 30 day suspension, 7 day vehicle seizure. 2. IRS (Immediate Roadside Sanction) – BAC of .05 to .08 - Immediate 3-day license suspension and 3-day vehicle seizure. with longer durations for subsequent offences. 3. 24 Hr Suspension – No reasonable Suspicion or Grounds to proceed in a formal Impaired Investigation, but a 24 hr suspension is given on the grounds of public safety.
