Mapping Car Ownersip in Melbourne
A recent map by CityMetric showed that in the UK people who live in city centers are far less likely to own cars than those who live in more rural areas. A map by Monash University suggests that a similar geographical distribution of car ownership exists in Australia. At least it does in Melbourne.
The Melbourne Car Ownership Map is a dot map visualizing where Melbourne's one, two, three and four car owning households are. It also shows those households who don't own a car. As you would expect the non-car owning households appear to be concentrated most in the center of Melbourne. Those households with three or fours cars tend to live in the suburbs.
The data for the map comes from the 2011 Australian census.
