There are not too many **statistics** about hitchhiking. Most hitchhikers don't (bother to) keep track of the specific details. Fortunately some do (see Keeping statistics), and it would be great to extract some significant information from their data.

One of the easiest way is to use Hitchlog.com

## Interesting numbers

- The waiting times per country/month/weekday
- The percentage of number plates from other countries (e.g. in SK: 90% SK, 5% CZ, 4% H)
- The average distance per ride
- Distribution of distances per ride
- Pickup times over a 24x7 period (i.e. minimum 168 periods, Mon 00:00-01:00 through Sun 23:00-24:00), possibly per country
- Greatest distance in 24 hour/365 days (not necessarily 00:00-24:00 or 01-01 to 31-12!)
*Add yours*

## Data

It would be good if all the following data were available under a free license. Creative Commons Attribution would probably be the most sensible.

- Prino's data and software Software is available under GPL V3
- fverhart

Some hitchhikers keep track of (part of) their trips on this wiki.

## More info
