  1. Notes.a Destination prevalence measures for a specific destination category (e.g., restaurants) represent the sum of the number of neighborhood street segments with specific destination types (e.g., specific types of restaurants) falling within the destination category. b Destination diversity measures represent the number of different types of facilities falling in the same destination category found in a neighborhood. c Safety- and infrastructure-related measures represent the percentage of the highest obtainable scores averaged across street segments falling within a neighborhood.
