Short Duration Counts
To compute AADT, the data collected during the short duration counts "48-hour periods" must be
adjusted to annual conditions. These adjustments include: axle correction (for counts made with single axle
sensors); day-of-week (for counts taken for less than one week); seasonal (to account for changes in volume
that occur from one time of year to another); time-of-day (for counts taken for less than 24 hours).
