The StL Index is a normalized value derived from our underlying data sample. Our Normalization process differs slightly across our different data sources, but ultimately it accounts for variation in our sample across space and time, and allows for comparison of Metrics across Projects. So for example, if our sample size increased dramatically between the months of May and June, causing a spike in Trip Counts between the two months, the StL Index would account for that variation. StL Index values are comparable across Projects run in the same country and with the same data source.
