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

## Interesting numbers

(please edit)

- The waitings time 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 weekday day/24 hour period
- Greatest distance in 24 hour/365 days

## 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 Source is available under GPL V3

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