AbstractThis study examines children’s independent mobility (CIM) among primary school students during their home-school journeys in Hong Kong. It represents an empirical research to assess the impact of individual, family and environmental determinants in influencing the level of CIM. Using territory-wide travel diary data from the Travel Characteristic Survey 2002 (TCS02), logistic regression modeling is used to understand the key factors associated with increased level of CIM among children in the city. The present study found that approximately one third of school journeys were conducted by children on their own. CIM were highly associated with the distance to schools, age group of children, median household income, family structure, working status of mothers, employment of domestic helper, neighborhood settlement types and density of school places. These findings can provide input to strategies for promoting increased level of CIM to improve children’s well-being.
