BTS is the principal federal statistical agency within the Department of Transportation, leading the department in data analytics, survey design, and data driven research. Mandated by Congress, BTS provides independent, objective, comprehensive and relevant information to decision makers and the public on the extent and use of the nations’ transportation systems, the system performance, and the systems impacts on society and the environment.
The Freight Expert and Program Manager is responsible for developing and managing critical national freight data programs, conducting analyses of freight related topics and effectively communicating results, providing expertise in freight data, modeling and analytical techniques, coordinating with colleagues on freight performance measures and their linkage with broader freight data and analysis efforts.
The Modeler plans, initiates and develops a range of econometric and statistical models to understand major issues in transportation, identify gaps and inconsistencies in the data, and provide research to inform policy. This position’s portfolio includes the Freight Analysis Framework (FAF) in addition to other transportation data modeling (i.e., transportation satellite accounts, long distance passenger travel, truck size and weight modeling). The FAF involves integration of data from a variety of freight and economic sources to create a comprehensive picture of freight movement among states and major metropolitan areas by all modes of transportation.
