The data is drawn from the National Travel Survey, a household survey designed to provide the government with an annual source of personal travel data for England. In 2014 approximately 7,000 household and 16,000 people took part in the survey.
3% of all journeys (for all transport types, including walking, cycling, and railway) and 6% of those by car or van were for business purposes.

As with all surveys, the data collected is self-reported. This means the data will potentially include biases.
