A brief description of the method(s) used to gather data about employee commuting:
An extensive survey, with close to 8000 respondents, on commuter behaviour was conducting in Spring of 2014. The values here represent preliminary results gathered through this survey. When comparing the survey respondents to actual SFU population make-up, the survey sample satisfactorily represents the surveyed population.
Values were calculated based on the commuting behaviour of all three SFU campuses (Burnaby, Vancouver, and Surrey).
