People Counting

Manual Count

Hand-held tally counter

Where a person counts the number individuals entering an area or getting on public transport, rather than an automatic counting system. It is less accurate than automatic systems (85% accurate rather than 98% accurate for passenger counting for example), provides limited data and can be more costly. Hand-held tally counters are often used in manual counting. Alternatively a tally counter app on a mobile phone is used.
