This book presents findings of a highly successful, international research project exploring links between social exclusion (SE), transport disadvantage (TD) and psychological well being (WB). It outlines previous methods and explains how new methods were developed and applied to assist readers in applying new methods in future research. New insights from results and their policy implications are explored by leading writers in the field. In each section the implications of the approaches and their applicability in other geographic contexts are discussed. New analytical perspectives include measuring the strength of links between SE, WB and TD and the disaggregate analysis of these to specific groups and spatial areas. The research also examines new perspectives in relation to social capital and WB and developing new economic methods to estimate the marginal value of additional travel and its links to SE. The project has numerous publications in diverse fields, however, the material presented here is new. This source brings all the work together into one volume and provides a consolidated set of the methods and outcomes of the project including the unpublished final results.
