Abstract. Methodological approaches to European Union statistical observations of road transport industry are described and comparative analysis of the methodology of statistical observations in Ukraine are performed.
The significance of statistical analysis and research of publications on the results of statistical observations for the economy of the country, business environment, scientists and other users is established.
The importance database for the National Transport Model is discussed. It is a powerful tool for analyzing, forecasting, feasibility studies of investment projects.
The main indicators of statistical reporting for road transport in Ukraine are analyzed. The gaps in the statistical data road transport have been identified. The table provides a clear demonstration of the comparison of Eurostat and Ukraine’s road transport methodology by type of indicators.
Differences in methodology with Eurostat in reporting areas were identified: rolling stock; enterprises, economic indicators and employment; road traffic; statistics of passenger road transport; freight road transport; national road freight transport; international road freight transport; cabotage by road.
Conclusions and suggestions on converting positions and methodology of national statistics to Eurostat methodology have been provided. It is proposed to create a single electronic platform, accumulating all the various statistics on: carriers, routes, volumes and destinations of transportation, transport work, rolling stock, runs, fuel costs, financial results of activity, investment activity, cross-border traffic, export-import, road accidents, etc. that will be accessible to all potential users of statistics.
Keywords: statistics, data base, methodology, reporting forms, sample surveys, road transport.
