Ranking: Health Benefits - Local Scale

In the case of the health benefits, the HEAT tool was used to produce an estimate of the annual benefit average (per cyclist; per trip; and total annual benefit) from the reduction in mortality as a result of cycling.

The values presented were determined by comparing scenarios, regarding the impacts of physical activity and air pollution associated with the use of the bicycle:

  • Reference scenario: 2011 census
  • Comparison scenario: ITDP 2021 (increase 2.02% of the modal share of the bicycle in 10 years)

This ranking presents the position of each municipality by the number of premature deaths avoided (per year) and the value that they represent in euros (€) for each municipality. To know the position in the ranking, enter the name of the municipality in the window above the table.
