Some of these data were underlying variables needed to work out the factors specifically requested by the World Bank. These extra data present some interesting perspectives in their own right. Again, as in Chapter 5, a series of key graphs are developed which clearly show the global comparative perspective on each of the major factors considered in the study. Similar systematic patterns of variation between the city regions are evident. Chapter 6 also includes a series of inter-correlations between the economic and environmental data, as well as key correlations between these data and the land use and transportation data provided in Chapter 5.

However, due to lack of funds and hence time that could be dedicated to the task of data compilation, it was not until 1993 that a small grant of $A10,000 was received from the University of Technology in Sydney which helped to provide basic resources needed by Jeff Kenworthy (then still employed on contract research), to put together most of the key private and public transportation data for all the cities and to examine trends between 1980 and 1990. This was published in Kenworthy and Newman (1993).

The experience gained in the previous round of work over 7 years through the 1980s is not easily or quickly conveyed to people just starting out. Each data item needs to be understood, a skill has to be developed as to how and where to track it down, and a capacity needs to be perfected in how to recognise bad data when it is provided and what to do about this when it is detected. When all efforts still fail to provide the necessary data, then a whole new set of skills is needed in how to get around the problems.
