DESCRIPTIVE ABSTRACT:

This dataset consists of a listing of all US interstate highways, treating the highway/state combination as the sampling unit. Three principal cities through which the highway runs are given for each state. Therefore, a single highway may have several observations, one observation for each state.

Interstate # Columns A
State Columns B
Approximate miles Columns C
Principal City 1 Columns D
Principal City 2 Columns E

SPECIAL NOTES: The miles are approximate, as author read them off maps using guide markers provided along highways. STORY BEHIND THE DATA:

Author, who is very interested in maps, geography, and U.S. transportation system had a lot of free time one weekend. He knew of no source that provided such information. Other datasets were also created at the same time.
