Definitions

  • Broad gauge: This entry states the total route length of the railway network and of its component parts by gauge: broad, dual, narrow, standard, and other.
  • Goods transported > Million ton-km: Goods transported by railway are the volume of goods transported by railway, measured in metric tons times kilometers traveled."
  • Narrow gauge: This entry states the total route length of the railway network and of its component parts by gauge: broad, dual, narrow, standard, and other.
  • Passengers carried > Million passenger-km: Passengers carried by railway are the number of passengers transported by rail times kilometers traveled.
  • Rail lines > Total route-km: Rail lines (total route-km). Rail lines are the length of railway route available for train service, irrespective of the number of parallel tracks.
  • Rail lines > Total route-km per million: Rail lines (total route-km). Rail lines are the length of railway route available for train service, irrespective of the number of parallel tracks. Figures expressed per million population for the same year.
  • Railways, goods transported > Million ton-km: Railways, goods transported (million ton-km). Goods transported by railway are the volume of goods transported by railway, measured in metric tons times kilometers traveled.
  • Railways, passengers carried > Million passenger-km: Railways, passengers carried (million passenger-km). Passengers carried by railway are the number of passengers transported by rail times kilometers traveled.
  • Railways, passengers carried > Million passenger-km per million: Railways, passengers carried (million passenger-km). Passengers carried by railway are the number of passengers transported by rail times kilometers traveled. Figures expressed per million population for the same year.
  • Standard gauge: This entry states the total route length of the railway network and of its component parts by gauge: broad, dual, narrow, standard, and other.
    Standard gauge=1.435-m gauge
  • Standard gauge > Per $ GDP: This entry states the total route length of the railway network and of its component parts by gauge: broad, dual, narrow, standard, and other.
    Standard gauge=1.435-m gauge Per $ GDP figures expressed per 1 billion $ gross domestic product.
  • Total: This entry states the total route length of the railway network and of its component parts by gauge: broad, dual, narrow, standard, and other.
  • Total > Per $ GDP: This entry states the total route length of the railway network and of its component parts by gauge: broad, dual, narrow, standard, and other. Per $ GDP figures expressed per 1 billion $ gross domestic product.
  • Total > Per capita: This entry states the total route length of the railway network and of its component parts by gauge: broad, dual, narrow, standard, and other. Per capita figures expressed per 1,000 population.
  • Total per million: This entry states the total route length of the railway network and of its component parts by gauge: broad, dual, narrow, standard, and other. Figures expressed per million population for the same year.
