* | airplane | Average American | RITA et al. 2009 Commodity Flow Survey: 2007 | US: All (2007) | 0.1 | % proportion of trips (0 - 100) | Proportion calculated across all modes based on ton-miles including mixed modes (e.g. truck and rail). Percentages may not sum to 100%. |

* | airplane | Average Earthling | RITA et al. 2009 Commodity Flow Survey: 2007 | US: All (2007) | 0.1 | % proportion of trips (0 - 100) | Due to a lack of global freight data, we have assumed the same value as the average American for this parameter. Proportion calculated across all modes based on ton-miles including mixed modes (e.g. truck and rail). Percentages may not sum to 100%. |

* | airplane | Average New Yorker | Bureau of Transportation Statistics 2002 - New York Transportation Profile | New York: All () | 0.4 | % proportion of trips (0 - 100) | This value is the proportion of shipments by ton-miles originating in New York State by air (including air and truck) in 1997. |

* | airplane | Eco-conscious | Assumed | New York City: Urban Area () | 0 | % proportion of trips (0 - 100) | We have assumed that this lifestyle only uses bikes, trains, and barges as freight modes because in general they are more environmental friendly ways of moving freight compared to trucks, pipelines, and airplanes. We have attributed 1 % of freight trips to bikes and split the rest of freight trips between trains and barges. |
