This report was commissioned to examine, analyze, and evaluate walkability measures in current
academic literature, assess the data available, develop a suitable walkability metric for Florida,
and design online maps to visualize Florida’s walkability using this devised formula. A broader
wish for the Department of Health is that the results of this study are useful to local planners for
designing more walkable communities with the long-term goal of increasing physical activity.
