A brief description of the method(s) used to gather data about student commuting:
Tarleton State University currently houses 4,012 students on campus, which count towards this total percentage. The university is surrounded by additional apartment buildings and rental property that is occupied by members of the student body. A conservative estimate of an additional 10% was added to the total number of students that walk, bicycle, or use other non-motorized means. This is a total of 4,413. 4,413 divided by the total number of students (undergraduate and graduate) 13,052, gives the percentage reported for this credit - 33.81%
