Abstract

This study examines how the relationship between active travel (AT) and the built environment (measured at 14 different geographical scales) is influenced by the modifiable areal unit problem (MAUP) in Halifax, Canada. The results suggest that the relationship between AT and the built environment is indeed impacted by the MAUP. These results are used to suggest guidelines for selecting an appropriate scale at which to measure the built environment in order to minimise MAUP effects
