|Four years on the easy/difficult questino|
It's hard to know how to interpret this. In the three previous years, walking and biking were asked about together. And in those years the "very easy" proportion swung wildly, from 40% to 31% and back to 48%. This year "very easy" walking was back down to 30% and "very easy" biking down to 20%. On the flip side, the "very difficult" numbers jumped from 6%-5%-3% to 11% and 12% It seems like there's a lot of noise in those numbers.
